The 29-year-old's been granted an exemption from Netball New Zealand which still allows her to play for the Silver Ferns while living in Australia.

Langman said she's looking forward to joining Swifts' midcourters Kimberlee Green and Paige Hadley.

"I think it's going to be a bit of a dream actually, I think Kim is one of the standout midcourters internationally in the game at the moment and Paige is an up and coming star so they're well established in that midcourt so I'm looking forward to trying to foot it with them," Langman said.

Langman is on an unbroken run of 127 Tests since making her International debut in March 2005 and has also not missed an ANZ Championship match since the League commenced in 2008; amassing 120 ANZ Championship Caps to date, the most in the competition's history.

She was part of the Silver Ferns' 58-55 final loss to Australia in the Netball World Champs held in Sydney earlier this month.
