Scotland youth international Kyle Joseph has signed a four-year deal with Swansea City amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur and others.

The young striker was wanted by clubs north and south of the border after five goals in 20 appearances for Wigan Athletic last season. Premier League clubs were said to be keen on Joseph, including Tottenham Hotspur.

Different clubs moved in and out of the race for his signature but Swansea City have ended the long-running saga that stretches back to the January transfer window earlier this year. Joseph joins Swansea City for an undisclosed fee and will form part of the Welsh side’s senior English Championship squad next season.

Scotland U21s manager Scott Gemmill called Joseph up for the first time for matches against Northern Ireland earlier this month. The 19-year-old has also represented Scotland at U18s and U19s level.
