Swansea boss Laudrup completes signing of Bolton striker Ngog

Swansea have bolstered their attacking options by signing Bolton striker David Ngog on a short-term basis, according to Sky Sports.

The former Liverpool forward has made the move from the Championship side for an undisclosed fee until the end of the season and is likely to be eligible to play for the Swans against Fulham on Saturday.

With his current contract set to expire in the summer, Ngog joins Michael Laudrup’s side sitting 15th in the Premier League having scored 27 goals so far this season.

He was also absent for Bolton’s FA Cup defeat against Cardiff, sparking reports that he could be set to leave the Trotters.

Before capturing Ngog, Swansea had been relying on strikers Wilfried Bony and Alvaro Vazquez, who were the only fit forwards at the club, with last season’s top goalscorer Michu currently injured.

With Bolton struggling in the Championship it was believed that they could be ready to cut their wagebill, and the former Paris Saint-Germain player’s departure will serve to do exactly that.

The 24-year-old had been at Bolton since signing for them back in 2011 from Liverpool for £4 million and scored 14 goals in 81 appearances for the Trotters.

Ngog moved to England in 2008 joining Liverpool from PSG, but struggled to make an impact during his spell at Anfield having been the understudy to Fernando Torres.

He scored 19 goals for the Merseyside club, having made 94 appearances, and has also represented the French U21 national side.
