Swansea City have acquired goalkeeper Mark Birighitti from Newcastle Jets of the Australia A-League on a free transfer.
Birighitti, 25 years of age, has signed a two-year deal. He has minimal experience playing for the Socceroos, making just one international cap. He was, however, named to the A-League team of the season and has European experience, playing a loan spell at Serie B side Varese. The move would seem to open up the possibility of a release or sale of Gerhard Tremmel, who is already third-string in the current depth chart behind Lukasz Fabianski and Kristoffer Nordfelt and getting up there in years at the age of 37. That, or perhaps the Swans will turn around and loan Birighitti out before the end of the summer. Either way, it would seem unlikely that they will keep all four keepers in their squad for the coming season. Fabianski looks like he will not face much of a challenge for the #1 shirt.
