Jordi Lopez has cancelled the remaining six months of his contract at Swansea by mutual consent, the club have confirmed.

The Spanish midfielder, 29, revealed only last month his desire for regular first-team football in the January transfer window having managed just one league start under new boss Brendan Rodgers this term - that coming in the opening-day defeat at Hull.

Lopez was Paulo Sousa's first signing at the Liberty Stadium in the summer of 2009, penning a two-year deal, although he started a mere seven league games last season.

A settlement has now been reached on the remainder of his City contract, ending what has been a pretty miserable stint in south Wales for the former Real Madrid man who arrived from Sousa's former club QPR with hopes high among Swansea fans he could be their talismanic asset in the middle of the park.

Lopez is now free to find a new club.
