Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches is set to make his Swansea debut against Newcastle after completing a shock season-long loan move from Bayern Munich.
The 20-year-old was named best young player of the tournament when Portugal won Euro 2016, but he struggled for game time at Bayern last season after making a 35million euros switch from Benfica.
“It didn’t quite happen for him last year at Bayern. That can happen; a young player moving country, different language, a big club and a lot of expectation.
“But he is a talent and the Premier League will suit him because he’s an aggressive player.
“He can tackle, he can get forward and he’s going to a club that play football the right way, so I think he’ll be a success.” – RYAN GIGGS, FORMER WALES INTERNATIONAL.

“Paul Clement’s ties to Bayern and his friendship with Carlo Ancelotti has obviously got a lot to do with him coming to Swansea.
“But you’ve got to capitalise on stuff like that.
“He’s a fantastic player and I think he will be one of the most exciting players in the league.” – RYAN GIGGS, FORMER WALES INTERNATIONAL.
