Tuesday 03 September 2013
Forward Alvaro Vazquez, who played a role in Spain's European Under-21 Championship title triumph in June, has left La Liga club Getafe for Premier League Swansea City on a season-long loan subject to international clearance.
"He is a little different to the strikers we have and has the characteristics we have been looking for," coach Michael Laudrup told the club website . "He will give us a different option."
Vazquez, 22, made his La Liga debut for Espanyol against Real Madrid in September 2010.
He joined Getafe a year ago and has scored 14 goals in 89 top-flight appearances in Spain.
