Championship side Swansea City have confirmed the signing of centre-forward Mykola Kukharevych (22). The Ukrainian youth international joins from Ligue 2 side ESTAC Troyes.
Kukharevych joined Troyes from Rukh Lviv back in the summer of 2020. Having gone out on loan, firstly to OH Leuven and then to Hibernian, he now leaves on a permanent deal. The Ukrainian scored five goals in 15 games for Hibernian but failed to find the net for Troyes during his only two matches for the Aubois side. Kukharevych has featured 15 times for the Ukrainian U21 side and has scored three goals during that time,
He now joins Swansea City for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance. The former Troyes forward has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the option for a further year. He will wear the number 19 for the Swans.
Troyes may lose more forwards this transfer window with Wilson Odobert set to join newly-promoted Premier League side Burnley, according to Foot Mercato.
