Michu is set to make his Spain debut early next year after his impressive spell in the English Premier League for Swansea.

The forward joined the Welsh side for just £2m (Dh7.3m) during the summer from Rayo Vallecano, and has already scored 13 goals in 18 league appearances for Michael Laudrup's side.

Now the current Premier League top scorer is set to be rewarded with his first international cap after Spain coach Vicente del Bosque confirmed the 26-year-old would feature in a friendly against Uruguay in February.

Michu, who scored against Manchester United in Sunday's fiery draw at the Liberty Stadium, will be joined by Iago Aspas - currently being linked with a move to Swansea.

"Iago Aspas and Michu will appear (against Uruguay)," Del Bosque told Spanish television.
