Garry Monk: 'Bafetimbi Gomis is a fantastic signing'

Swansea City manager Garry Monk admits that he is delighted to secure the signature of France international Bafetmbi Gomis.

Swansea City manager Garry Monk believes that the signing of striker Bafetimbi Gomis acts as proof that the club are progressing in the right direction.

Gomis has signed a four-year deal at the Liberty Stadium, and Monk, who was installed as the club's permanent manager at the end of the last campaign, has described the transfer as a "very big and important signing".

The 35-year-old told the club's official website: "You are talking about a quality striker who has played international, Champions League and top-flight football in France for a big club.

"I'm very happy. It's a fantastic signing; a very big and important signing for the club. It shows just how far we have come that we can attract a player of his quality."

Gomis netted 17 goals in 43 appearances for Lyon last season.
