Renato Sanches kicks off Premier League career with a record

Patrick Power by Patrick Power @rfutbol - 0 +10k

Star summer signing Renato Sanches only arrived at Swansea a few days ago, but Paul Clement has already handed him his first start, against Newcastle.

Sanches' arrival in south Wales was surprising even for the home fans, with Bayern Munich loaning out their 35-million-euro youngster to acquire game time and experience elsewhere.

And the Portuguese midfielder has started with a bang, breaking straight into the lineup. To date, in the 2017/18 campaign, Sanches has played six minutes in the German Super Cup. In Clement's side, he will have all the minutes he wants.

In starting his first Premier League match against Newcastle, Sanches has broken a record straight away: he has become the youngest non-British footballer to play for Swansea City in the Premier League (20 years and 23 days).
