    He IS a beast in the air! Can't really think of anyone better than him in that area.

    I think this is a very shrewd bit of business. But again I'm tinkled that it comes so late in the day but very good acquisition none the less

    Not overly excited by this but I do think we needed another option. I'm happy for Janssen to still be with us but something clearly needed to change and maybe having another experienced striker will help him.

    I stopped watching him and Swansea last couple of years. Does any one know how he'd fit in as I'm assuming he isn't as fit anymore and pressing would be an issue?

    15 goals in 33 league matches last season was impressive for a player at Swansea

    Watching that goals video reminded me of Berbatov.

    Looking at his goals from last season he gives us something different. Toby is a threat at corners and set plays, but in open play with our wing backs bombing forward I can see him getting his head on the old pigs bladder a few times. I am genuinely excited by this signing.....

    When I saw him in games you didn't notice him

    The he would pop up and score or get stuck in

    Last season his goals came in pairs too

    Pleased with this for several reasons.
    One , he's a proven player but it also shows flexibility from our leaders that we can't have an entire team or squad made up of youth. This is hardly going back to saggy face's model, just gives us a nicely weighted blend, in an area that can be critical to win games, imo.

    Most swans fans on Twitter are thanking him for his time with them and also wishing him best of luck at spurs. Doesn't seem to be a lot of bad blood at all, quite the opposite.

    Well, with possibly Llorente, Kane, Adlerwiereld and Sanchez all waiting for corners - those are some beasts in there :)

    I was not sure about this when i first heard of our interest in him, however on reflection i think it could be a very good buy. He is great in the air and his first touch is pretty good, Kane will learn a lot from him and he will give us a extra dimension when he does play.

    I am glad to see that Janssen is still here as well, he will also learn about movement in the box another thing Llorente is very good at.
