Swansea have signed teenage striker Oli McBurnie from Bradford City for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old joins the Premier League club on a three-year deal and will join the Swans' development squad.

"I'm really excited about getting started," McBurnie told Swansea's official website.

"I've known about the interest for a little while now but it all got finalised pretty quickly and the hard work starts now."

McBurnie made his debut for Bradford against Rotherham in the FA Cup in November 2013 and the first of only two league starts followed a month later against the same club.

He made a total of 20 appearances for the Bantams, 16 as a substitute, but failed to score and had two loan spells at Chester last season, scoring five goals in 14 games.
