Swansea City have completed the signing of Spanish Under-21 international Alvaro Vazquez from Getafe.

The 22-year-old striker has joined Swansea on a season-long loan with the view to a permanent transfer.

"Vasquez is a young player I know from his time at Espanyol and now Getafe," explained Swansea boss Michael Laudrup.

"He is a little different to the strikers we have and has the characteristics we have been looking for. He will give us a different option."

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins added: "He is a young player with plenty of potential. He has already done well out in Spain and looks like the right signing for us at this stage."
