Renato Sanches Officially Joins Swansea City on Loan Transfer from Bayern Munich

Making his first appearance for the Swans following a season-long loan move from Bayern Munich, there were hopes of the talented youngster immediately delivering on some of his promise for the Welsh side as they faced Newcastle on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho has publicly noted that he would have fought to sign Sanches and perhaps his loan spell in the Premier League will serve as a flawless opportunity to inspect his talent from close before making a bid.

The Swans head into the game having beaten Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park in their last Premier League outing, handing manager Paul Clement his first league win of the season.

Swansea City manager Paul Clement claims that his current squad is stronger than last season's despite losing Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente during the summer.

Tammy Abraham was a whisker away from giving Swansea the lead but, after rounding visiting goalkeeper Rob Elliot, his shot was superbly cleared off the line by Lascelles. I will just leave that problem with the justice. "It's a good feeling to be here".

On returning to Swansea, Bony said he is excited.

"He's a fantastic player and I think he will be one of the most exciting players in the league".

"I am just focused on the pitch and for Sunday's game".

"Swansea is where I played my best football", he said ahead of tomorrow's visit of Newcastle. They heard about the move and said they wanted to go back to Swansea.

"Liked the way he played and thought he would suit Premier League football". "There were other options - Lille, Fenerbahce and others - but most important was what my family said". What I want is to do my best for the team to win and then we can enjoy the rest.", he said and added, "I completely supported them [Swansea] and wanted them to stay in the Premier League".
