Routledge completes Swans switch

Swansea City have completed the signing of Wayne Routledge from Newcastle United.

• Routledge set for Swansea

Swansea sealed a deal for Leroy Lita on Wednesday and Routledge has followed suit for an undisclosed fee after passing his medical.

The 26-year-old former England Under-21 international has put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract and will compete with Scott Sinclair and Nathan Dyer for a wing spot at the Liberty Stadium.

Routledge told the club's official website: "I'm looking forward to the challenge. It's taken a couple of days to get everything agreed, but I'm excited about getting started.''

The midfielder has plenty of top-flight experience having had spells at Tottenham, Portsmouth, Fulham, Aston Villa and Newcastle.

He impressed during his loan spell at QPR last season, and was a key figure in helping the London club to the Championship title.
