Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez has returned to South Wales following his first European scouting mission this pre-season.
The Spaniard explained to the Evening Post that there is a good Swansea City following in Spain and he has a long list of targets:
|'It was the perfect time for us to go to Spain because the league was coming to a conclusion while our season had already ended,'|
'It is a good opportunity to catch up with players who we have been monitoring for a long period along with preparing things for the pre-season.
'I have been watching La Liga and Segunda Division games in Spain along with some matches in Holland and Scotland, including Rangers' game with Motherwell.
'We wanted to check on the development of players, which is an ongoing process.
'There will be a lot of names and rumours being floated about.
'I can say that we have looked at a lot of players - it is not possible to go through that list with you because it would take forever.
'But we are carefully monitoring each player's ability and character, because it is important that you have the right personality off the pitch as well as on it.'
'I have spoken to players that want to come to play for Swansea City,'
