The Gunners shot stopper won the FA Cup in his final game for the north London side, but spoke to television afterwards about a desire to leave in seek of first team football.

Fabianski has struggled to oust Jens Lehmann, Manuel Almunia and Wojciech Szczesny from the Arsenal team since joining in 2007, but has demonstrated enough in his time with the club to show he is ready to take the number one jersey elsewhere in the top flight.

In the FA Cup run, Fabianski was man of the match against Liverpool and Wigan Athletic, and was also instrumental in keeping a clean sheet at Norwich City in his single Premier League appearance of the last campaign.

After running down his contract at Emirates Stadium, Fabianski had no shortage of suitors, but Swansea have won the race to bring the Pole to the Liberty Stadium.

The Poland international will be in direct competition with Michel Vorm and Gerhard Tremmel for a place in between the posts for Gary Monk’s side, and will hope to finally make his name in England as a first choice custodian.
