Jordi López Felpeto (born February 28, 1981 in Granollers, Barcelona, Catalonia) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Swansea City, mainly as a defensive midfielder.


Football career

As a young footballer, López played for both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid's B teams. After appearing with the latter's main side in two 2003–04 matches, he represented Sevilla FC during two seasons. With the Andalusia side, López took part in 10 contests during the 2005–06 UEFA Cup victorious campaign, netting the only goal in a win at FC Lokomotiv Moscow, and scored his first La Liga one in a 3–1 win at RCD Espanyol, on April 10, 2005.

In 2006–07, López played with RCD Mallorca, being loaned the following season to fellow league side Racing de Santander, where he was often used from the bench, as the Cantabria side achieved a first-ever UEFA Cup qualification.

At the end of the season, Mallorca released López, and he immediately started training with English Premier League side Portsmouth FC. However, on August 19, 2008, it was revealed he was having a trial with fellow club Blackburn Rovers. Both spells were unsuccessful, and López returned to the Balearic Islands, being left to train on his own for the first months of 2008–09. Finally, in December 16, he was released.

On January 2009, López was expected to sign during the transfer window with Birmingham City of the English second level, but failed his medical. In the following month, he joined fellow league side Queens Park Rangers for the final 15 games of the season,[1] making his debut coming on as a substitute for Matteo Alberti, at Barnsley FC.

After some speculation, López agreed terms to join former QPR boss Paulo Sousa at Swansea City, on 16 July 2009, subject to a medical. Four days later, he signed a two-year deal.[2]
