Swansea Re-sign German Stopper


Just three months after Swansea City let Gerhard Tremmel leave, the Swans have re-signed the German goalkeeper on a two-year deal.

tremTremmel left the club in the summer, but Swansea have struggled to bring in another ‘keeper so have turned back to their former player. The Swans did sign Kristoffer Nordfeldt from Heerenveen during the summer, but Garry Monk wanted one more stopper to add to his squad. Speaking to Swansea’s official site, the 36-year-old said;

“It’s fantastic to be back at Swansea – this is where I want to be. This is a special club. I had other options from top-flights clubs in Germany and England, but Swansea is my environment with my people.

“I know what Swansea is all about, and it’s great to be part of the club. I’ve experienced the biggest achievement of my career here in winning the cup, and seeing the club continue to progress is really pleasing for me to see.

“Now I can concentrate on the season ahead and hopefully we can all make this another fantastic campaign for everyone to remember.”

Tremmel has made 52 appearances for the Swans since first joining from Red Bull Salzburg in 2011, he also played a big part in Swansea City 2013 League Cup success.
