Michael Laudrup reunited with Chico Flores after paying Genoa £2million for his services.
The defender, full name Jose Manuel Flores played, under Laudrup while on loan at La Liga outfit Mallorca.
The deal, which includes add-ons, saw Chico pen a three-year contract at the Liberty in July.
Chico's career started as a youth player with hometown club Cádiz CF in 2005. He also spent loan spells at Racing Club Portuense and Barcelona B, helping the Catalans gain promotion to level three.
The defender then signed with Cádiz neighbours Unión Deportiva Almería to help the club maintain its top flight status in La Liga after a 13th-place finish.
Having made his debut for the Spanish Under-21 side, he signed a five-year contract for Genoa in Italy for €4 million in July 2010.
A year later he agreed a one-year loan deal with RCD Mallorca where he teamed up with the current Swans boss, making 33 appearances.
