Swansea City defender would be open to move to Spain

Swansea City defender Jordi Amat is open to a move back to Spain this summer, according to Football Espana.

The 26-year-old centre-back spent last season on loan at La Liga side Real Betis and played 26 games for them in all competitions. He is now open to a permanent move to Betis or a return to his former club Espanyol.

Amat could leave the Swans this summer after their relegation to the Championship. They are set to appoint Ostersunds manager Graham Potter and it will be interesting to see if the Spanish defender is part of his plans.

Amat started his career at Espanyol after joining them at the age of 7 and rose through the youth ranks there. He broke into their first-team in 2009 and went onto play 47 games for them before he was loaned out to Rayo Vallecano for the 2012/13 season. Amat is now keen on a return to Espanyol six years after he left them.

The Spaniard moved to England in 2013 to join Swansea City for £2.5 million when they were in the Premier League. He played 73 games for them in the top flight before he was loaned out to Real Betis last summer by their former manager, Paul Clement.

It now appears that Amat’s future is away from Swansea and a return to Spain could be on the cards for him over the coming months.
