Swansea City have completed the signing of Jordi Amat from Espanyol for a £2.5m fee, subject to the defender completing his medical.

The 21-year-old has long been on manager Michael Laudrup's radar, and he becomes the second summer arrival at the Liberty Stadium, with the services of Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas already secured.

A statement on Swansea's official website said: "Swansea City have completed the £2.5m signing of central defender Jordi Amat from Espanyol, subject to a medical and international clearance."

Amat, who spent last season on loan at Rayo Vallecano, has agreed a four-year contract. Swansea have made offers for a number of players over the past couple of weeks, with Amat the first among them to join the club.

Real Betis midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo is also set to join his former team-mate Canas in south Wales, while Swansea are looking to bring Jonathan de Guzman back to the Liberty Stadium on a second season-long loan.
