And then it happened anyway – Christie signs on loan from Fulham

It all happened in a little over 18 hours that he was signing, then he wasn’t, then we weren’t in for him and then, lo and behold, we signed him on loan anyway – Cyrus Christie is officially a Jack, or at least a Jack on loan.

The club confirmed the signing earlier subject to international clearance with Christie telling the official site “I am buzzing that it is done and I am really happy to be here.

“I am looking forward to playing some football again, I spoke to the manager and straight away he almost made my mind up for me.

“It’s always great when a manager rings you and outlines everything he wants from you and how he sees you fitting in.

“I like to get forward and get assists, that has maybe been what I have made my career on,” he added.

“When you do that some people do question your defensive side, but I have the numbers to back it up.

“But as an attacking player growing up, it was about getting forward and I feel I can create chances and provide assists.”

Welcome to Swansea Cyrus.
