"Ben only had good things to say about Swansea," the 22-year-old is quoted as saying by the South Wales Evening Post.
"He obviously knows the club inside and out, and he told me that I will love it here. He spoke very promisingly about the club and people.
"In my opinion, Swansea are among the best teams in the league when it comes to style of play. It is very similar to Tottenham — playing football from the back with a good tempo."
Carroll is available for the clash with Burnley this afternoon.
