Amat expects smooth transition at Swansea

1 July 2013 14:23

New Swansea signing Jordi Amat is excited at the prospect of joining up with a strong Spanish presence at the Liberty Stadium.

Amat completed his £2.5 million move from La Liga side Espanyol last week and expects to settle quickly to life in South Wales.

The 21-year-old centre back becomes the sixth Spaniard in Michael Laudrup's squad, joining up with Michu, Pablo Hernandez, Chico Flores, Angel Rangel and fellow new signing Jose Canas.

He told the clubs official website: "I know Pablo Hernandez and Michu already, while Chico and Angel Rangel are very important players here.

"I also played against Jose Canas last season in La Liga so I know a lot about him."

However, it is not just the prospect of joining his fellow countrymen that excites Amat about playing for Swansea as the side's slick passing style of play gives the team more of a continental edge compared to the physicality of some of their Premier League rivals.

"It is the way in which the club play the style here is perfect for me - it is the way I play," he added.

Swansea, last season's League Cup winners, will prepare for their third consecutive season in the top flight and a UEFA Europa League campaign with a pre-season tour of Holland.
