Seattle Sounders forward Jordan Morris has completed a loan move to Swansea City.

The 26-year old will stay at the Liberty Stadium until the end of the season, although it's understood there is an option to make the deal permanent.

Swansea will not pay a loan fee for the forward, but are set to pay a significant proportion of his wages.

Morris becomes the club's third signing of the January transfer window following the acquisitions of goalkeeper Ben Hamer from Huddersfield Town and midfielder Conor Hourihane from Aston Villa.

However, he has not signed on in time to be given a run out for Saturday's FA Cup clash with Nottingham Forest.

Morris has netted 34 goals for the Sounders in 102 MLS appearances, and has previously been linked with a move to Europe before.

Speaking about the move, Swans boss Steve Cooper said: "Jordan is a high-level player, an international who has played on the highest stage and been successful in the MLS,” said the Swansea head coach.

"He has big ambitions to play in Europe and he had a lot of offers, so to think that we have got him is a really good thing.

"He brings good technique, he is athletic, he is quick and brings a threat. He likes to create and score in those areas of the pitch and we are adding to our attacking threat.

"Having lost a couple of bodies at that end of the pitch, and to be able to do that with Jordan is very positive."
