Swansea City have completed what could be the most shocking transfer of this window by signing Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old, one of Europe's hottest properties last summer, has struggled to make his mark at the Bundesliga champions since joining for £30million.

While it may surprise many how the youngster was snapped by the modest Premier League side, it is known that the sensational move has been aided by current Swans boss Paul Clement having worked with the midfielder at the Allianz Arena while acting as assistant to Carlo Ancelotti.

His move to the Welsh club comes with the expectation that he will see regular first-team action at the Liberty Stadium. There is no option to buy when the deal comes to an end next summer.

And his healthy relationship with the European giants has seen them entrust the English coach with one of their most promising talents.

“We are delighted that we have reached agreement with Swansea City on the loan,” said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“It was our goal for Renato to be used regularly by a club in a very strong league such as the Premier League.

“We are still convinced that he has the potential to become an important player for Bayern in the future.”
