Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has stated he won't be adding anymore Spanish players to his current team after signing Jose Canas, Jordi Amat and Alejandro Pozuelo.
This takes Swansea’s total of Spanish player to seven and Laudrup has made it clear that he wants to start bringing in more British talent.
"We have seven Spanish players now and we have more or less reached a limit. They are all very nice guys but this is still a Welsh team - a British team," explained Laudrup.
"The Premier League and La Liga are the top two leagues but there is an economic difference because of the financial crisis.
"We can have two players at the same level and one will cost £4m and the other £8m - which would you choose?
"The problem is one player is Spanish and the other is British. But you can't choose the £4m man every time or you will have 11 Spanish players.
"That's why I am very pleased we have a player like Jonjo Shelvey. He has quality, he's young but experienced and I hear the value for money is good. When you have the possibility to get a talent like that, it's good."
Laudrup has also signed Ivory Coast international Wilfried Bony during this summer’s transfer window.
