Amat improving rapidly with Swansea

Swansea City defender Jordi Amat believes he is developing swiftly with the Welsh club.

The 21-year old Spanish defender has made a total of 14 appearances since his summer move from Rayo Vallecano with nine of those coming in the Europa League and he feels that exposure is helping him progress well at the top level.

"Being part of this team is very enjoyable for me," he told the club's official website. "The style is perfect and I think I am improving with every game I play.

"Playing in the Premier League and also the Europa League has been a dream for me.

"I've learned so much not only in the games but on the training pitch too. Watching (central defenders) Ashley Williams and Chico Flores is an education for me, and also listening to the advice of the coaches too has really helped me.

"Playing against the different styles and tactics of opposition players and teams in the Premier League and on the continent has been massive in my development here."
