Swansea City new boy Jose Canas has said that he was already well aware of what Swansea City are capable of after completing his move to Wales last week, the Telegraph reports.

And the defensive midfield ace is happy to boost the club’s Spanish contingent as he joins up with the likes of Pablo Hernandez, Michu, Angel Rangel and Chico Flores.

“I knew them all from playing against them in Spain,” he said. “I know Chico the best as we are both from Cadiz and have been playing against each other since we were kids.

“I spoke to Chico and he said he has enjoyed the season at Swansea very much so I am pretty excited to join them all.

“Swansea have become very famous in Spain. Actually, together with Wigan, it is the most followed Premier League club in Spain.

“Matches are always on TV and press coverage is quite big in Spain about the club and its Spanish footballers.”

He added: “The Premier League is the place where everyone wants to be now, and Swansea City is very attractive in the league due to the way they play, the manager they have and the friendly club that it is. I could not let this opportunity go to be honest.

“The manager was a quite important point. I had several options abroad and the fact that the manager knows you obviously helps when making the decision. His style of play is quite attractive and I do not think I will have any difficulties to fit in quickly.

“We had some options but Swansea was on top of them from the beginning – they showed strong interest and that was important to me.”
