SWANSEA, Wales (AP) -Swansea has signed Belgium winger Roland Lamah on an 18-month loan deal from Spanish club Osasuna, subject to English Premier League clearance.

The Welsh side has the option of making the transfer permanent for the Ivory Coast-born midfielder at any time during the loan spell.

Lamah, who is left-footed but can play on either wing, will provide further options out wide for Michael Laudrup's team, which looks to maintain its impressive form in the Premier League. Swansea is also in the League Cup semifinals.

The 25-year-old Lamah moved to Belgium at age 15, and has represented his country at U19, U20 and U21 level, before winning five senior caps.

Following a four-year spell at Belgian giant Anderlecht, Lamah has played in the Netherlands, France and Spain before moving to south Wales.
