The Swansea City striker Michu was on the verge of joining Napoli on night after undergoing a medical at the Italian club.

The 28-year-old’s transfer comes after Swansea brought in another forward, Bafétimbi Gomis, on a free transfer after his contract at Lyon expired.

Michu joined Swansea in July 2012 from Rayo Vallecano and impressed sufficiently to earn a call-up to the Spain squad, although he was not selected for the World Cup.
