Swansea City's new goalkeeping coach Javier Garcia

Swansea City have appointed Javier Garcia as the club's new goalkeeping coach.

The 34-year-old Spaniard has joined from Europa League winners Sevilla, who finished fifth in La Liga last season.

Garcia will replace Adrian Tucker, who has left the club following a five-year tenure.

"I'm delighted to be given the opportunity to work at a club that is growing at a rapid rate in the best league in the world," said Garcia.

"All the information I've received about the city and how the club, chairman and manager work convinced me to come to Swansea.

"It's a great opportunity for me to work in such a positive environment where I can develop and grow with the club."

Garcia added: "I've already studied videos of Michel Vorm, Gerhard Tremmel and Lukasz Fabianski.

"They are three top quality goalkeepers and I am looking forward to working with them."
