Jordi Amat signed for Swansea City in the summer 2013 transfer window for around £2m, but despite the low cost it was expected the defensive player would fit in well and have the chance to be a key player for the Swans.
It’s didn’t really work out that way and a move away on loan wasn’t a great surprise. Real Betis had been looking around the market for low cost deals and Amat was one they were able to pull off.
When the loan ends, the 25 year old still has a year left on his Swansea contract and decisions will have to be made in the summer on his long term future.
Quizzed this weekend ahead of Real Betis’ match against Espanyol, something they went on to win 3-0 with Amat playing the full 90 minutes, Estadio Deportivo wanted to know what happens in the summer.
Amat explained: “I am on loan for a year, I am very happy to have the chance to continue playing and in the summer there will be talks and negotiation, I have one year left in Swansea.”
Settled in Seville, Amat seems to like the idea of staying at Beits, but the club will almost certainly go in very low with any offer. Indeed, it would be no surprise if their first approach is based on an assumption Swansea will let the player leave for free.
