Swansea have confirmed the departures of Spanish pair Chico Flores and Pablo Hernandez for undisclosed fees.

Both players will play in the Qatari Stars League with centre-back Flores linking up with former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup at champions Lekhwiya and midfielder Hernandez joining Al-Arabi.

Both transfers are subject to international clearance but the moves will end two-year spells for the Spaniards at the Liberty Stadium.

Swans don't fear Man United - Fabianski

Lukasz Fabianski says that fear will not be on Swansea's agenda when they open their Barclays Premier League campaign against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

It's not going to be an easy game for them. We are going to give our best and try to win it.

We are going to be well-prepared for the game and it's going to be very interesting.

There is no point to fear the opposition, especially as Swansea beat them away in the FA Cup (last season) so we should not be fearing anything.

They are a big club, but we are going to go there and try to get some points. That's our aim.

FIFA has received a complaint from Michel Vorm's former club FC Utrecht in relation to the Dutch goalkeeper's transfer to Tottenham from Swansea.

Vorm moved from the Liberty Stadium to White Hart Lane last month for an undisclosed fee, with Utrecht claiming they have not received 30 per cent of Vorm's transfer fee, which they allege was part of a sell-on agreement between them and the Swans when he moved to Wales for £1.5million in 2011.
