Swans sign Serran in 80,000 deal

Swansea City

Swansea have completed the signing of defender Albert Serran from Espanyol for 80,000.

Spaniard Serran, 23, has completed a long-term deal at the Liberty Stadium after being freed by his La Liga club.

"Albert is perfect for the British game. He is a committed and aggressive defender," said Swans manager Roberto Martinez.

Serran's arrival makes him the fourth former Espanyol player to arrive at the club.

Ex-Espanyol defender, Argentine full-back Federico Bessone, also joined the Swans over the weekend while Guillem Bauza and loan-signing Jordi Gomez also used to play for the Spanish club.

Spanish manager Roberto Martinez will have plenty of chance to use his native tongue in Swansea next season.

Serran becomes the sixth Spaniard at the Swans with Gorka Pintado and Angel Rangel making up the last of the club's Spanish contingent.
