Swansea City's new Spanish striker Alvaro Vazquez is hoping to make an instant impact after his deadline day arrival at the Liberty Stadium.
The 22-year-old joined on a season-long loan with a view to buy from Getafe, where he had been for one season.
He joined Getafe having come through the ranks at Espanyol and his La Liga record stands at 14 goals in 89 appearances.
The Barcelona-born man has seven goals in 14 matches for the Spanish under-21 side and is eager to impress in the Premier League.
"This is a really good opportunity and I will try to make the most of it this season," he said, speaking to the club's official website.
"I know a lot about Swansea, not just the club but the players as well. They have a lot of Spanish players that I was aware of, and of course Michael Laudrup as well.
"I'm also aware of the great season that they had last year and now they are playing in the Europa League as well. I have never played in that competition and I'm really looking forward to it."
Vazquez also highlighted the key role new manager Laudrup had played in his switch, a major figure in Spanish football during his playing days at Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“I know Laudrup as a player, and as a manager as well,” he said.
“When I was playing for Espanyol I played against his Mallorca team.
“I have seen lots of videos of him as a player, and I know his teams play good football and achieve great results.
“It’s an honour for me to be here and I will try to do my best and repay him for showing faith in me.”
Vazquez's first opportunity to turn out for his new side may come in Swansea's first Premier League game after the international break at home to Liverpool on 16 September.
