The Cyprus Under-21 international has signed a two-year deal and will join up with the Swans' Under-21 squad.

"It's great to be here," he told Swansea's website. "It has taken a long time to get sorted but it feels good and I just want to get my head down now and focus on the season ahead.

"Swansea are a Premier League club, they play a great brand of football and they are a team that gives young players an opportunity.

"My short-term aim is get game time and try to score as many goals as I can, but long-term I want to break into the first-team here and impress the manager."
