Cape Town - Swansea City newboy Tyler Reid says he can't wait to make his mark at the club after completing his switch from Manchester United.

The 18-year-old defender says the move to the Liberty Stadium was an easy decision as chances of breaking into the United first team would be much harder.

"I am really looking forward to a fresh challenge and getting started," Reid told the club's official website.

"I see a good opportunity to play first team football with the development squad here. Swansea play good attractive football and I think that suits my style of play.

"I see myself as a quick, strong and powerful player who likes to get forward. I hope I can offer something both in attack and defence.

"Having grown up in London and living in Manchester for the last four years, Swansea will be a fresh challenge for me. It is one I am looking forward to, I can't wait to get started.

"I want to make my mark, secure a starting place for the development squad and help make an impact this season."
