Swansea City have signed Spanish
central defender Jose Manuel Flores from Serie A side Genoa for
an initial 2 million pounds, the Premier League club said on
The 25-year-old, known as Chico, has agreed a three-year
contract with Swansea, joining up again with the Welsh club's
new manager Michael Laudrup, for whom he played while on loan at
La Liga side Mallorca last season.
"He was one of the main reasons I signed," explained Chico.
"He knows me as a person and a player, so I was honoured when
the call came."
"I believe the manager will be good for Swansea and they
have done extremely well to get him. Swansea's way of playing is
the same style as he wants to play the game. He is the right
person to take this club forward," added the former Spain Under-21 international.
Dane Laudrup replaced Brendan Rodgers who left Swansea to
take over from Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool after impressing in
the Welsh club's first season in the Premier League.
