Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is delighted with their season-long loan for Getafe forward Alvaro Vazquez.

The striker, who cost the Swans a £1million loan fee, completed his move before Monday's 11pm transfer deadline.

Michael Laudrup - who made Vazquez his 11th summer signings - said: "Vasquez is a young player I know from his time at Espanyol and now Getafe.

"He is a little different to the strikers we have and has the characteristics we have been looking for. He will give us a different option."
