Swansea City striker Eder has inked a permanent contract with Lille following a successful loan stint during the second half of the last season.

The 28-year-old joined the Swans from Braga last summer with a view to playing a regular role in the starting setup. However, he failed to adapt to the pace of the English game, and was often found playing a regular role from the substitutes' bench.

Eder followed to link up with French side Lille at the turn of the year, and he has since settled well netting six goals and four assists in just 13 appearances.

Lille have now confirmed that Eder has penned a four-year deal on an undisclosed fee to end his nightmare stay at Swansea.

"His signing is good for the present and the future of the LOSC," Lille manager Frederic Ancelotti said."Eder, we learned to know, to appreciate and I am very happy today he belongs to the club"
