Swansea City complete signing of Roland Lamah
Swansea City have today completed the loan deal for Belgian winger Roland Lamah for an undisclosed fee from La Liga club Osasuna.
The Swans have the option to make the move permanent at any time during the 18-month spell.
Lamah, who will wear number 14, agreed personal terms and completed a medical at the Liberty yesterday, but paperwork issues at Osasuna meant Lamah was unable to conclude the transfer last night.
Lamah, 25, said playing in the Premier League is "a dream."

“This is a great opportunity for me and I’m happy to be here,” he said.
“I know a few of the players here, and I already know that Swansea is a family club that will suit my style of play.
“To play in the Premier League is a dream, and also to play under Michael Laudrup is fantastic for me.
“I am looking forward to starting training and meeting the squad, and then I want to show everyone what I can do.”
The Belgian international is ineligible for Wednesday’s FA Cup third-round replay against Arsenal as he was not registered in time for the first match, but he will be available for Saturday's clash at the Liberty against Stoke City.
Swans chairman, Huw Jenkins, was delighted to complete the first signing of the January transfer window.
"We’ve been watching him for a while," he said. "Michael (Laudrup) has been looking to strengthen the wide positions to create more competition and we are delighted everything has been agreed.
"He is a player with slightly different attributes to what we already have. Hopefully he will settle in quickly and perform to his best."
