British media put the fee for the 26-year-old at around 15 million pounds.

"He is a good footballer and that is what we want here," Clement told reporters. "The fact he can play in so many positions reinforces that he is a good footballer."

"This is the first one (signing) in the latter parts of the window and hopefully we can do a couple more," Clement said after Tuesday's 4-1 win over MK Dons in the League Cup.

Swansea return to Premier League action on Saturday when they travel to Crystal Palace.
