Swansea turn to Oliveira to plug Bony gap

23 December 2014, 17:26

London - Portugal international Nelson Oliveira is the man Swansea City have turned to solve their striking problem in the New Year.

Oliveira, 23, will join the Swans on loan until the end of the season on January 1, the club announced on Tuesday.

His arrival solves a problem for manager Garry Monk who will lose top scorer Wilfried Bony to the African Nations Cup next month.

Ivory Coast striker Bony could miss up to six games in January and February and Bafetimbi Gomis is the only other recognised senior striker in the squad.

"I'm really looking forward to it," Oliveira told Swansea's official website.

"I already know quite a bit about Swansea and it was their style of play and the ambiance at the club that attracted me. It was an easy decision to make."

Oliveira, who has won 14 caps for his country and played for Portugal at Euro 2012, joins from Benfica where he has struggled to make an impact.

He spent last season on loan at French club Rennes, where he scored eight goals in 30 league appearances.
