Swans seal Emnes deal

Swansea City have finalised a loan deal for Middlesbrough forward Marvin Emnes.

Sky Sports revealed that Swansea had made a move for Emnes, who has already enjoyed a spell in South Wales.

He spent time on loan at Swansea in 2010, which included scoring in a derby win over Cardiff - making him a firm fans favourite.

Now he has been given the chance to return to Swansea after Boro agreed to sanction his loan move.

"After the season Swansea has an option to buy me," Emnes told Voetbal International.

"Both clubs were already in talks for a while. It was on-off-on-off. This Friday after noon finally Middlesbrough and Swansea came to an agreement.

"It's good for me. Now it's up to me to show it in the Premier League."
