LONDON (Reuters) – Spanish forward Michu has left Swansea City by mutual consent, the Premier League club said on Monday.
The 29-year-old has been released from his contract which ran until the end of this season and is now a free agent.
Michu scored 28 goals in 67 games for Swansea after joining from Rayo Vallecano in 2012 for 2 million pounds ($3.02 million)
He scored twice on his debut in a 5-0 win at Queens Park Rangers and was the club’s leading scorer in his first season with 22 goals, including one in a 5-0 victory over Bradford City in the League Cup final.
Injuries have hampered Michu’s career since, however, and he spent last season on loan at Italian club Napoli.
