Swansea City have confirmed the signing of Bolton Wanderers striker David Ngog for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old, whose contract at the Reebok Stadium was due to expire in the summer, missed Wanderers' FA Cup clash with Cardiff at the weekend and completed a medical in south Wales on Monday afternoon before penning terms until the end of the season.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup has been keen to add more attacking options to ease the burden on Wilfried Bony with last season's top scorer Michu still nursing an ankle problem.

Swansea also revealed they were hoping to get permission from the Premier League to allow Ngog to play in the home game against Fulham on Tuesday night.

Ngog arrives at the Liberty Stadium having scored three goals in his final four appearances for Bolton, whom he joined from Liverpool in 2011.

However, Dougie Freedman's side have been keen to trim their wage bill as they adjust to life in the Sky Bet Championship after last year's accounts showed their net debt surpassing £160million.
