Having been linked with the Barcelona forward for much of the summer, a deal was finally completed on Tuesday.

A loan switch had been mooted, but Bojan has moved to the Britannia Stadium on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

His capture is considered to be quite a coup, given that he has also turned out for Roma, AC Milan and Ajax and has been capped at senior level by Spain.

Muniesa, who made a similar switch last summer as he swapped Catalunya for Stoke, is delighted to be welcoming a familiar face and is backing Bojan to be a big hit in the Premier League.

He said in The Sentinel: “I have spoken with him. I said that everything is okay here – team-mates, training and football.

“Also, to play in the Premier League will help him grow as a player and is a nice experience. He will enjoy it. I will help him with everything.”

Muniesa added: “He is a very good striker, but always playing as the second striker.

“He can also play right winger, but I think his best position is second striker because then he is in the area and he has a very good finish. He is also quick with a good touch.”

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
