Swansea City will have to cough up a fee for Real Betis midfielder Jose Alberto Canas.

The Sun says Swans are ready to sign Real Betis midfielder Canas for £200,000.

Betis expected him to leave on a free in June but Canas, 25, has accepted Michael Laudrup's 18-month deal and will be released now.

Swansea have seen off Southampton, Bruges and Kaiserslautern to sign the Spaniard.
