Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has been applauded for his summer signings of Michu and Pablo Hernandez from La Liga, and it looks like he has gone to the Spanish top flight to bring in another player. 

On Tuesday, Sky Sports News confirmed on Twitter that the Swans brought in another player from La Liga.

The Telegraph also confirmed the move of Belgian winger Roland Lamah from Osasuna to Swansea City on an 18-month loan deal. 

Lamah, 25, has made 15 appearances for Osasuna in La Liga this season, amounting to seven starts and eight appearances as a substitute. 

In those seven starts, Lamah has lined up as a left winger, a position where he will play at Swansea. 

Currently, the Swans have utilized Wayne Routledge the most at the left wing position.

Lamah's entrance into the Swansea fold will provide Routledge with competition at the position in the preferred 4-2-3-1 position that Laudrup employs. 

Swansea will be the seventh club that Lamah has played for since he turned professional in 2003.

Lamah is the latest Belgian to join an EPL club with high-profile players like Marouane Fellaini and Eden Hazard already playing in the English top flight. 

While he is currently not in the national team picture, Lamah has made five appearances for Belgium since 2009.
