"I’ve been really impressed speaking with the manager and the chairman over the last few days," Gomis later told the club’s website. "They showed they really wanted me – and that’s one of the main reasons I chose Swansea ahead of the other interested clubs.
"They’ve been trying for over a year to sign me. It didn’t quite happen back then, but they kept trying and I’m absolutely delighted to be here now.
"Although I’ve been aware of Swansea for a number of seasons, I’ve been following them a lot closer since the interest first materialised last year.
"It’s a proud club with strong philosophies. It is growing all the time and I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to be part of it.
"I watched a number of games last season and I think the style will suit me. It’s a collective, passing approach which I like. I think the way the team play creates lots of chances for the striker and hopefully I can score plenty of goals."
The Frenchman added that he was looking forward to forming a partnership with Bony.
"I do not see Wilfried Bony as competition, more of an association, because I know we can also play perfectly together," he said "We can benefit each other and that will be strong for the team."
