Alejandro Pozuelo: Real Betis midfielder has joined Swansea on a three-year deal

Alejandro Pozuelo: Real Betis midfielder has joined Swansea on a three-year deal

The 21-year-old's arrival means Swansea now have seven Spaniards on their books, and Pozuelo told the club's official website: "That will help me to settle quickly.

"I am very happy to have joined Swansea City. Since I've been a little boy it has been my dream to play in the Premier League.

"From the moment I heard of the interest from Swansea I have watched their games and followed the news at the club. The style of the team suits me, and so too does the style of the manager.

"I am looking to improve my English immediately as I want to communicate better with my team-mates. On the pitch I just want to give everything I have to the club in order to help the team this season."

Pozuelo made 11 league appearances for Betis last season, and his arrival is unlikely to be the last at the Liberty Stadium this summer.

Jose Canas and Jordi Amat have already been brought in, and chairman Huw Jenkins has admitted an interest in Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis, Wilfried Bony of Vitesse Arnhem and Liverpool's Jonjo Shelvey.

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...
