Llanelli Town have added Football League defender Daniel Alfei and Swansea City youngster Jordan Jones to their squad.

Alfei, 26, was playing in the Football League for Yeovil Town last season but suffered a season-ending ACL injury. Jones joins the Reds, having left Championship outfit Swansea City.

During Alfei’s time at the Liberty Stadium, he spent five loan spells away from the South Wales club.

He played mostly in the Football League, for clubs like Mansfield Town, Northampton Town and Portsmouth. Alfei has 60 Football League appearances under his belt.

Manager Andy Hill said: “Both these lads have a tremendous amount to offer, I’m absolutely delighted to welcome them to the club, and can’t wait to see them in action”

The former Swansea City defender had been released by the Glovers but was allowed to train with the Football League side over the course of pre-season.

He returns to the Welsh Premier League, having played for Aberystwyth Town in the previous campaign.

Joining him at Steboneath Park is another former Swan, midfielder Jordan Jones. The 19-year-old can plays as a central midfielder and as a defensive midfielder.

He has most recently been playing U18’s Premier League football for the Swans, making 12 appearances.

Jones was released by Swansea in the summer, along with Cardiff Metropolitan University goalkeeper Alex Lang.

He joins former Swansea City team-mate Mael Davies in the Welsh Premier League. Davies signed for Carmarthen Town earlier this month and scored his first goal for the Old Gold on Tuesday evening.
