Swansea sign Las Palmas midfielder Roque Mesa

Swansea City have added a fresh face to their midfield by signing Roque Mesa from Las Palmas on a four-year contract.

The 28-year-old has been at Las Palmas since 2010 when he moved on a free transfer from Tenerife. 

The defensively-minded central midfielder made 35 La Liga appearances for Las Palmas last season, scoring a goal and producing three assists.

"I'm very happy to be here. It's a new challenge and a new adventure," 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."

Mesa is manager Paul Clement's third addition this transfer window, following goalkeeper Erwin Mulder and loanee striker Tammy Abraham.
