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.

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
