Przemyslaw Placheta has completed a permanent move to Swansea City after mutually agreeing to depart Norwich City early.

The Pole's Canaries contract was due to expire in the summer with no prospect of a new deal, meaning the Norfolk club allowed him to find a new side before this evening's transfer deadline.

The Swans have beaten off competition from Rotherham United for the 25-year-old's signature, tying him down to a six-month deal until the end of the season.

Placheta moved to Carrow Road from Slask Wroclaw in 2020 for a fee of around £2.7million, with then-sporting director Stuart Webber hoping his raw talent could be honed after a short spell with German giants RB Leipzig.

He leaves the club having made only 61 appearances in over three years at the club, however, scoring twice and making four assists. Significant parts of that spell were hampered by injury, while head coach David Wagner's experiments with him at left-back never amounted to a sustainable starting berth.

“I am looking forward to joining such a huge club,” Placheta told official club channels. “When I heard of the interest in me, I thought this would be a good place to become a better player.

“I want to help the team, it’s a very good team. I have seen a couple of games, and when I played against Swansea earlier this season we lost 2-1, so I hope I can add something positive to this team.

“I will try to do my best and to work hard on the pitch for this team, I cannot wait to try and do my best here.

“I am fast and I hope I can add this quality to the team to help Swansea win games. I will do my best to score goals and make assists to help the team win.

“I want to play as many games as I can and put in my best performance on the pitch. I am looking forward to the challenge.”
