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.''
