Alvaro Vazquez: The striker has joined Swansea City on loan from Getafe

The 22-year old, who was part of Spain's European Under 21 Championship-winning side this summer, featured 25 times in La Liga last season, finding the net on four occasions.

Vazquez makes the move to the Liberty Stadium with a view to a permanent transfer and manager Michael Laudrup says that the youngster will offer his side an attacking alternative.

"Vasquez is a young player I know from his time at Espanyol and now Getafe," he told the Swans' official website.

"He is a little different to the strikers we have and has the characteristics we have been looking for. He will give us a different option."

Vazquez becomes Swansea's 11th signing this summer and chairman Huw Jenkins also talked up the abilities of their latest arrival.

"He is a young player with plenty of potential. He has already done well out in Spain and looks like the right signing for us at this stage," said Jenkins.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
