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.
