After sealing his move, McKay said: “It’s great to be here. It is a new project for me and I am really looking forward to it.

“Swansea is a massive club. It was obviously a disappointment for them to be relegated and I want to help the club get back to where they should be.

“The Championship is a hard league – anyone can beat anyone – but there is no reason why we cannot do well.

“Coming here gives me a different opportunity and a chance to play. I have watched a lot of clips of Swansea – I have done my research.

“I’ve met the manager and spoken to him. He gives a lot of confidence to his players and the way he wants to play suits my game.”

McKay becomes new Swansea manager Graham Potter’s fifth summer signing as he reshapes his squad after replacing Carlos Carvalhal.
