Canas, who leaves on a free transfer, joined Swansea from Real Betis last year, also on a three-year contract.

The 27-year-old made 35 appearances for City last season, but his contract has been cancelled by mutual consent, allowing him to return to Spain.

Canas was signed by former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup in the summer of 2013 and featured heavily in the club's Europa League campaign.

But his last game for the Welsh club was at Everton at the end of March and new manager Garry Monk told him in the summer that he was not part of his plans.

Canas, who had also been linked with Spanish club Elche, returns to La Liga by joining an Espanyol side that has picked up one point from their opening two top-flight matches.

"Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Jose for his services to the club, and wish him well for the future," said a club statement.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
