Swansea City Sign £2m Spanish Defender Flores

Swansea City have completed the signing of Genoa defender Jose Manuel Flores in a deal worth £2m plus add-ons.

fter completing the season long of attacking midfielder Jonathan de Guzman from Villareal, Michael Laudrup has signed Flores to replace last season's loanee Steven Caulker.

ike de Guzman, Flores has worked with Laudrup before at Mallorca and both players were delighted to team up again with the Dane.

he 25 year-old will sign a thee-year deal subject to international clearance, and he told the Official Site that he is 'very happy' to join the Premier League club:

I>'I'm very happy to be here,''

I know I am joining a club that has been growing over the last few years and is still ambitious to go even higher.

Having played in La Liga (Spain) and Serie A (Italy), two great leagues, it's a dream come true to play in the Premier League, one of the best, if not the best, in the world.''

b>Flores also spoke about the influence Laudrup had on his decision to join the Swans.

I>'He was one of the main reasons I signed,''

He knows me as a person and a player, so I was honoured when the call came.

I believe the manager will be good for Swansea and they have done extremely well to get him. Swansea's way of playing is the same style as he wants to play the game. He is the right person to take this club forward.''

I'm really looking forward to it. I have been studying Swansea on the internet and I know I am joining a club with passionate supporters who are very close to the players.''
