Montero, who still has three years left of his Swansea contract, but instead opted to leave the Liberty Stadium after failing to get a chance under manager Paul Clement this season.

Montero, played a total of 66 matches and scored just one goal over the course of these three years in South Wales.

The Ecuador international was signed from Mexican club Monarcas Morelia three years ago has struggled with lot of injuries this past season, which put him down the pecking order in the Swansea starting lineup.
