Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is set to seal the signing of Getafe forward Alvaro Vazquez on a season-long loan.

The Dane had been keen to add a different type of forward to Michu and Wilfried Bony to his squad and seems to have found that in the form of the young Spaniard.

This comes after the club were linked with West Brom's Peter Odemwingie, but it seems they have given up that pursuit in order to push through the Vazquez deal. 

Laudrup said: "We had some players in the UK as well with different passports but for one reason or another it wasn't possible so we will get this player from abroad.

"In this case it's a loan deal with an option so if he does well we will buy him and I think that's the right way. We spent a lot of money in the summer with Bony and Shelvey so it's a good way for us."

The 22-year-old will become the club's ninth and, most likely, last signing of a busy summer, with Laudrup happy that his squad can challenge both domestically and in Europe, especially seeing as high-profile departures from the club are now very unlikely.

Michu and Ashley Williams had been linked with moves away from the club, but interest in the pair appears to have cooled, leaving Laudrup in a good mood as the transfer window shuts.

He said: I'm almost certain to say no-one will leave."

"You never know, there may be a loan out in a week but it's nearly impossible for any permanent deals.

"So, one will join us and nobody will leave us."
