Spanish Armada Set To Increase

The moves would take the Spanish contingent at the Liberty to five on the playing staff with Pintado and Gomez joining Rangel, Orlandi and Bauza at the Liberty as the squad begins to take shape for the Championship.

Espanyol have confirmed on their website that the move for Gomez has been agreed and the player is due in South Wales later this week for his medical and is described by the Evening Post as a playmaker – a possible replacement for the seemingly departing Ferrie Bodde?

Pintado was confirmed as a target last weekend and reports from Spain also suggested the move had been completed although the Swans have claimed that reports of both moves being completed are premature and talks are continuing.

"Roberto is currently out in Spain speaking to a number of players," said Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins.

"As usual he is working tirelessly and Gorka and Jordi are both high on his list of targets."
