Daniel Menzel joins Swans on one-year deal

Delisted Cat Daniel Menzel has officially joined the Swans on a one-year deal.

Sydney say the 27-year-old will help bolster their forward line.

Menzel has battled a series of serious injuries throughout his 73-game, 136-goal career, including four knee reconstructions.

After a booting 15 goals in his opening five games in 2018, Menzel's season hit a snag when a groin injection went awry and he didn't appear again for Geelong until round 17.

The Swans' head of football Charlie Gardiner said the club was looking forward to welcoming Menzel to Sydney.

“Dan is a great talent and a proven performer at senior level with Geelong. He brings a wealth of footy experience to our group and we are confident he can add real value to our squad,” Gardiner said.

“Dan has shown tremendous character to work through his injury challenges in his career to date and has shown in his past three seasons that hes still got a lot to offer at senior level. We hope that a change of scene and a new environment will only strengthen his football.

“Dan will add to our attack and our scoring ability and has a lot to offer our team and our young and emerging forwards.”

Menzel, who is currently in the United States, said he couldn't wait for the next chapter of his football career.

“Im really thankful and excited at the opportunity the Swans have given me and Im looking forward to getting into the club and training with my new teammates,” Menzel said.

“Success is obviously a real motivator and the Swans were really appealing to me for that reason.”
