Liverpool's Aspas turned down Swansea move - Laudrup

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has revealed that Iago Aspas turned down a potential move to the club before signing for Liverpool.

The 26-year old Spanish forward joined the Reds from Celta Vigo in the summer but Laudrup admits it could have been a different story as his Swans get set to host the Merseysiders on Monday night.

"Liverpool is a huge club, so I can't really blame him," the Dane told the South Wales Evening Post.

"I have been in football too many years to have thought we'd got him before he had signed. But yes, he was one of the players we looked at, and in the end Liverpool came in.

"He is fast, he is a goalscorer, he has good football intelligence, good movement and he is two-footed, so I think he will do well there."
