Swansea have signed midfielder Roque Mesa from Las Palmas for £11million.
The midfielder has penned a four-year contract with the Swans after completing his medical this morning.
Mesa becomes the third most expensive signing in Swansea’s history after Borja Baston (£15.5m) and Wilfried Bony (£12m).
His pass-completion rate of 91.4 per cent was ranked as the fourth highest in LaLiga last season and Clement knew of Mesa’s ability from his time working as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant at Real Madrid between 2013 and 2015.

I’m very happy to be here. It’s a new challenge and a new adventure,” Roque Mesa told Swansea’s official website.
“The manager knows me, he knows how I play and what I can contribute to the team. I’ll try to make the team play.
“I know he’s like Ancelotti — he likes to play and wants to create a different Premier League team which likes to play. The manager is a person who knows how to play and that’s something I really like.”
