Sky Sports sources on Friday revealed last season's Capital One Cup winners had agreed terms with NK Domzale for the 17-year-old.

And Zabret has now revealed he chose a move to Swansea over their Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion, as well as Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.

"It is true. I am coming to Swansea City," the teenager told Sportal.

"I got some offers this summer, even West Brom and Sporting Lisbon wanted me. But I chose Swansea City some time ago.

"That was a decision that was taken after talking with my family. I believe that my decision is the right one.

"I know I will have to work hard to prove myself but I am ready for that and I believe that I will succeed in Premier League."

Zabret will inevitably be one for the future for Swansea given they already have reliable goalkeepers in Michel Vorm and Gerhard Tremmel.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
