Newcastle United have reported on their web-site tonight, that Wayne Routledge has completed his move to Swansea City, after he passed a medical with the Welsh club two days ago.
Wayne Routledge – Swansea is Wayne’s 9th club
Newcastle had already agreed a fee with The Swans, which was thought to be close to £2M, and the signing was completed at the Liberty Stadium.
Wayne made a great start to his career a year last January, when he helped the Magpies win the Championship by 11 points from WBA, and were a full 32 points ahead of third placed Nottingham Forest.
The 26-year-old winger played a total of 36 times for Newcastle with 3 goals, and he now gets a chance to test himself once again in the Premier League.
This is Wayne’s ninth club in a ten year long career, and no doubt he will hope he can settle at the South Wales club.
And Newcastle are now about £2M up on their transfer dealings this summer, so maybe they will now start spending some of their money on new players.
We wish Wayne the very best of luck at his new club
