Swans swoop for Spanish duo
06 Jun 2008 - 11:37:40
Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez has completed the signings of Spanish duo Gorka Pintado and Jordi Gomez for a combined transfer fee of £300,000.
Pintado is a 30-year-old striker who has been playing with Segunda B side Granada, while 22-year-old midfielder Gomez moves to the Liberty Stadium on a one-year loan deal from Espanyol.
"I can assure you that we've captured two quality signings,'' Martinez told the Swans' official website. "They've got Championship quality written all over them.
"We've been watching the two players for the last two seasons and I'm absolutely delighted we've managed to persuade them to commit to Swansea City.
"They are typical Swansea City players in terms of quality, skill, attitude and desire.
"Gorka is a very charismatic player, a talisman and a hero out there. He has goals in his blood, a real finisher, tactically very aware, aggressive and as strong as a bull.
"We've been following Jordi's progress for quite some time and were delighted when he chose Swansea City ahead of three La Liga clubs.
"He's got great control, technical ability and never gives the ball away. And having scored ten goals from midfield last season, he's also a clinical finisher around the box."
