Fede Bessone is relishing the second chance he has been provided by Swansea City as he returns to the club from Leeds United.

In 2010, when the South Wales club was still struggling in the Npower Championship, Bessone moved to their league rivals, but was soon sent away to Charlton Athletic after failing to impress at Elland Road.

But the Argentinian defender has pledged to improve, and is excited about his return and first shot at the Barclays Premier League after the unsuccessful spell with the Whites.

Bessone said: “I was at home making some food when my agent called and said Swansea wanted me back.

"I said, 'Come on man, are you joking?', but three hours later I was on my way home. Swansea is the place I came to when I came to the United Kingdom and I had two magnificent years here.

"After I signed on Wednesday, I went to my hotel and I could not sleep all night.

"I was thinking about being back with the guys and playing in the Premier League — it's a dream for me.


 

"I spoke to the manager and said I need to improve, but I want to do my best and show everybody that I can play."

Brendan Rodgers remembers a quality player that the club wanted to resign though, and is confident Bessone will fit back in well at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans boss said: "Fede did very well in the final season before he left here.

"He comes back to a very different club, but we need competition in the group and my fear was that if we lost Neil Taylor for any reason, the balance of the team would be affected.

“In Fede we have someone who knows the system. He will provide cover and support and will also challenge."
