I want to be a success at Swansea, says Roque Mesa

Roque Mesa has declared his commitment to Swansea following talks over his future with Paul Clement.

Mesa joined Swansea from Las Palmas in an £11million deal last summer after being widely regarded as one of LaLiga's top midfielders.

But the Spaniard has made only one Premier League start as Swansea have fallen into the relegation zone.

The 28-year-old said last month that he would need to assess his situation in January if his amount of game time did not increase.

But Mesa has now distanced himself from those remarks after discussing his lack of playing opportunities with head coach Clement.

"I'm pretty calm, it's not the first time I have no continuity," Mesa told the Canary Islands-based Canarias Radio.

"I know that working will get me the minutes I need, my situation will change. I know how this works.

"I think the adaptation period to Swansea has already happened, this is football, but I am ready to count on minutes.

"I have a personal trainer with whom I prepare in the afternoons, I respect the decision of the coach on the 11 who play.

"I spoke with Clement not long ago and he told me he was counting on me."

Mesa was an eye-catching signing for Swansea given that his pass completion rate of 91.4 per cent was ranked as the fourth highest in LaLiga last season.

But Mesa has had only 133 minutes of Premier League action as well as starting three Carabao Cup ties.

There has been speculation that his former club would attempt to re-sign him on loan in January, with Las Palmas fans keen on the idea.

"I am grateful that the fans of Las Palmas want me to return," Mesa said.

"When you win, you do not remember one (who has left), but you do when you have lost.

"My time in Las Palmas is over and now I support the team from here.

"I do not contemplate a return, because I want to succeed in Swansea."
