Pablo Hernandez has completed a move to Swansea from Valencia for a fee in the region of 5.5 million pounds.
The versatile winger can play in any attacking midfield role and joins the Swans as an immediate replacement for Scott Sinclair, who left for Manchester City for a fee of up to 8m.
The 27-year-old made 45 appearances in all competitions for Valencia last season scoring five goals, and has won four international caps for Spain.
Commenting on his move, Hernandez told Sky Sports News: “I am happy. It’s my dream to play in the Premier League.”
He joins Jonathan de Guzman and compatriots Michu and Chico as manager Michael Laudrup’s signings from La Liga, and is also joined in midfield by South Korea international Ki Sung-Yueng who completed his move from Celtic last week.
The Danish international legend Laudrup has had to reshape the Welsh side since replacing Brendan Rodgers, following the departures of key players Steven Caulker, Joe Allen, and Gylfi Sigurdsson, but has began the season in impressive fashion, scoring eight goals and conceding none in their first two matches.
