Striker Luke Moore is a former England under-21 international
Swansea City have completed the signing of West Bromwich Albion striker Luke Moore on a two-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old goes straight into Saturday's squad for the FA Cup third round tie at home to Colchester United.
"I had a few offers from other clubs," said Moore.
"But as soon as I came down to speak to the manager and chairman Huw Jenkins I was very committed to Swansea and I wasn't going to go back on my word."
Moore won the FA Youth Cup with Aston Villa in 2002 before scoring 14 goals in his five years as a professional - including a Premier League hat-trick at Middlesbrough in February 2006.
The former England under-21 international signed for Premier League new boys Albion in the summer of 2008 in a £3m deal after a three-month loan spell at the Hawthorns.
But Moore scored just five goals in two seasons for the Baggies before being left out of their 25-man 2010/11 Premier League squad last September - and subsequently went out on loan to Derby where he scored four goals in nine starts.
"I spoke to a lot of people about the manager before I came down for talks and they all had nothing but praise for him as a person and a coach," added Moore.
"I needed confirmation for myself on how he saw me fitting in to the squad, but as soon as I spoke to him I knew there was only one place for me.
"There is a great set up here at Swansea, from the stadium and the pitch to the squad itself. There are some very good young players here and I think everyone in the game is well aware of their unique style of play.
"They always play good football, which I think will suit me. I'm really looking forward to it.''
And Swans boss Brendan Rodgers believes Moore will be a success at the Liberty Stadium.
"I'm delighted we've signed him on a permanent deal rather than a loan," said Rodgers.
