Swansea City have snapped up free agent striker Cedric van der Gun. The 30-year-old Dutchman has penned a one-year contract at the Liberty Stadium after training with the Swans during the past few weeks. Van der Gun has previously played for Ajax, Den Bosch, Willem II, Den Haag, Borussia Dortmind and FC Utrecht. Meanwhile, Swans midfielder Ferrie Bodde believes he is ready for first-team action after making his return from a ten-month knee ligament injury lay-off in a reserve game against Swindon Town. After playing for 83 minutes, he told the club's official website: "It felt good to play a game again. "I felt that I could have gone on to play the full 90 minutes but I'm happy just to get back on the pitch. The knee felt good, it's getting stronger. "I do need to get some more games under my belt but I feel that I'm ready to become involved with the first team again."
