Swansea City loan signing Alvaro Vasquez can’t wait to get started in the Premier League.

The 22-year old striker has joined the Jacks on a season-long loan from Spanish side Getafe and is eager to get stuck in with his new club.

"I'm very happy to be here," the Spain U21 international told the club's official website.

"This is a really good opportunity and I will try to make the most of it this season.

"I know a lot about Swansea, not just the club but the players as well. They have a lot of Spanish players that I was aware of, and of course Michael Laudrup as well.

"I'm also aware of the great season that they had last year and now they are playing in the Europa League as well. I have never played in that competition and I'm really looking forward to it.

"Playing in the European Championships was very good. We managed to win it and I'm sure it will help me in the Premier League.

"Also, having a manager that speaks my language is great. Also, coming to a new country and new culture, I now have lots of other Spaniards here that will be really helpful."
