Swansea boss Laudrup holding back big-money signing Hernandez

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says he'll hold back big money signing Pablo Hernandez.

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says he'll hold back big money signing Pablo Hernandez.

Spanish international Hernandez joined the Welsh club in a £5.55m deal from Valencia on deadline day and is in the squad to face Aston Villa tomorrow.

Laudrup said: “Nathan (Dyer) and Wayne (Routledge) have started the season in great form. Now Pablo is here. We have three fantastic players for two positions and that is important.

“Two will play and one will be on the bench. Pablo looks fit and sharp, but it was the same when Ki Sung-Yueng came in.

“It is not a question of whether they cost £1, £5 or £10m. You have to look at the overall picture. We are only in the beginning and everyone wants to play.

“But we need a squad for when we make some changes, either before or during a game, so the level stays the same.”
