Swansea City have confirmed they have completed the signing of former Spain striker Fernando Llorente.

The 31-year-old, who was part of the Spain squads that won the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship, joins from Sevilla after scoring nearly 130 goals in a career which has also taken in Athletic Bilbao and Juventus.

“The striker, who will wear squad number nine, has signed a two-year contract at the Liberty Stadium after undergoing a successful medical,” said a Swansea statement.

“I am very happy to join Swansea,” added Llorente.

“I have scored goals in La Liga and Serie A, and now I want to score a lot of goals for the club in the Premier League.

“I want to score a lot of goals like Michu. He is a very good player and he did very well here.”
