Roque Mesa has distanced himself from a January return to Las Palmas after holding talks with Swansea City boss 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.
“I am grateful that the fans of Las Palmas want me to return,” he told Canarias Radio. “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 the Swansea.”
“I spoke with Clement not long ago and he told me he was counting on me, I respect him professionally, I respect the coach’s decisions.”
Roque 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.
