Six Premier League clubs rejected Michu before Swansea move

No less than six Premier League clubs rejected the chance to buy Michu before his move to Swansea City.

The Daily Mail says Fulham, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, West Ham United and Aston Villa were also told by an independent agent in Spain about the 26-year-old in the summer and encouraged to bid for a man who had just scored 15 goals in La Liga.

In Tottenham's case, they turned him down twice.

Spurs were first notified about Michu in the summer of 2011, when his contract at Celta Vigo, who were then in the Spanish second tier, expired. It meant that he was available on a free transfer. He was again offered to Spurs when becoming available from Rayo Vallecano in the summer.
