Cyrus Christie makes loan move to Swansea

Cyrus Christie has swapped Championship high-flyers Fulham for fellow second tier club Swansea. 

The Republic of Ireland defender's move is a loan deal until the end of the season.

Christie - who was on loan at Nottingham Forest last year - has had limited opportunities with Fulham.

Marco Silva's charges are currently second in the table, with Swansea in 17th.

“I am buzzing that it is done and I am really happy to be here," Christie told Swansea's official website. 

“I am looking forward to playing some football again, I spoke to the manager (Russell Martin) and straight away he almost made my mind up for me."

Christie's move to the Welsh club comes following the departure of left-back Ethan Laird.

He was recalled by parent club Manchester United before joining Bournemouth.

That could offer Christie - who has made 29 appearances for Ireland - an opportunity for more regular football.

He hasn't made a single league appearance for Fulham since August 2020, though he played 44 times for Forest last season.

“It has been a tough time recently where I have not been able to show my full ability," Christie continued.

“The opportunity has been hard to come by, so I want to come here and show that quality and prove it.

“I want to help the lads push up the league and this is a league where anything can happen, especially with those games in hand.”

He will join fellow Republic of Ireland players Ryan Manning and Michael Obafemi in the Swansea squad.
