Swansea, Wales (Sports Network) – Swansea City has reached an agreement to
bring Getafe striker Alvaro Vazquez to the Liberty Stadium on a season-long
loan.

The 22-year-old Vazquez was a member of Spain’s Under-21 side which captured
the European championship this summer, and he tallied four goals in 25 games
for Getafe last season in La Liga.

“Vasquez is a young player I know from his time at Espanyol and now Getafe,”
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup said.

“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.”
