Jack Cork has completed his move to Swansea City.

The 25-year old was offered a contract extension as his contract is up at the end of the season, but stating his desire to play regular first-team football has opted for this switch.

The deal is believed to worth £3m, and Cork has put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half year contract.

However, the former Chelsea youth product won't be eligible to face Southampton this Sunday as the deal was not completed in time.

Cork took to Twitter to say his goodbyes to Southampton:

Cork joined Southampton from Chelsea in 2011, after previously signing for the club on loan back in 2008. He has made 153 appearances for Southampton and helped the club to a promotion from The Championship in his first full season.

Cork's departure means that Southampton will attempt to bring a replacement before the transfer window shuts on February 2. Ronald Koeman has confirmed that the club is targeting Filip Duričić and Tonny Vilhena.
