Beattie has joined the Swans in a club record fee from West Brom – a fee which could rise as high as £800,000.

As he spoke to the official site upon completing the move he revealed that he has no hesitation in joining the club as soon as he heard about the interest yesterday.

He said "The move happened quite quickly but I am absolutely delighted to be here

"I was playing in the League Cup against Rotherham only Tuesday and then found out about Swansea's interest yesterday but had no hesitation to joining.

"I was desperate for it to go through, Swansea are one of the best football teams around and now that it has I'm delighted.

"The boys gave me a good welcome and I'm looking forward to playing with them," he added.

"It was also nice to see Stephen Dobbie – I used to play against him when we were younger. He's a good lad and it's nice to be able to hear another Scottish accent around the place!

"But now I'm looking forward to getting my head down, get going and score some goals."
