Swansea City midfielder Jose Canas admits "it is a pity" so many Spanish players need to leave their home for a decent pay-packet.

Canas left Real Betis for Swansea over the summer.

"It is a pity that the Spanish players have to emigrate.

"But I value things and I think a change of scenery can come in handy, playing in another league helps you mature. The decision is correct and I am happy to be here. What mattered was the experience and new goals," said Canas.
