Jordi Amat: Spanish central defender heading to Swansea

Swansea have completed the signing of Jordi Amat from Espanyol for a £2.5million fee, subject to the defender completing his medical.

The 21-year-old has long been on manager Michael Laudrup's radar, and he becomes the second summer arrival at the Liberty Stadium, with the services of Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas already secured.

A statement on the Swansea website said: "Swansea City have completed the £2.5m signing of central defender Jordi Amat from Espanyol, subject to a medical and international clearance."

Amat, who spent last season on loan at Rayo Vallecano, has agreed a four-year contract.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
