Michu makes Napoli loan move

Swansea forward Michu has joined Napoli on a season-long loan with an agreed option to make the move permanent.

Napoli's chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis revealed the news via his Twiter account saying 'Benvenuto a Michu' before Swansea confirmed the news.

Michu joined the Welsh club in 2012 for 2million from Rayo Vallecano and impressed during his first season, scoring 22 goals in 43 matches.

However, the 28-year-old endured a frustrating second season in Wales due to injuries and netted only twice in 15 starts in the Premier League.

The one-cap Spain international scored 28 goals in 63 games in total for the Welsh club.

Napoli, who are managed by Rafa Benitez, finished third in Serie A last term to secure a place in the Champions League play-offs and also won the Coppa Italia for a fifth time.
