Swansea City have signed Spanish midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo from Real Betis for an undisclosed fee.
The 21-year-old becomes the third Spaniard at The Liberty Stadium and has signed a three-year deal for the Welsh club. He told the club’s website that he thinks the existing player’s from his home nation will help him settle quickly.
“I am very happy to have joined Swansea City. Since I have been a little boy it has been my dream to play in the Premier League,” he told the club’s website.
From the moment I heard of the interest from Swansea I have watched their games and followed the news at the club. The style of the team suits me and so too does the style of the manager,” he added.
The Seville born playmaker has made 29 appearances in total for Real Betis’ first team and now becomes part of the Swansea revolution which saw them finish 9th last season.
He becomes Michael Laudrup’s third signing of the summer following Jose Canas and Jordi Almat and we can expect to see more players joining before the season starts in August. Chairman Huw Jenkins is determined to back his manager after he turned down managerial approaches from around Europe.
