MEXICO CITY — A lawyer for drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán says his client now wants to be extradited as soon as possible to the United States. He complains that guards at a Mexican maximum-security prison won’t let him sleep.

Lawyer José Refugio Rodríguez says Guzmán told him to negotiate with U.S. authorities for a lighter sentence and confinement at a medium-security prison.

Rodriguez told the Radio Formula station Wednesday he talked to Guzmán Tuesday at the Altiplano prison west of Mexico City.

Guzmán’s lawyers once vowed to fight extradition, and officials said it would take at least a year.

But Rodríguez suggested it could be done in two months.

Guards wake Guzmán every four hours for a head count. He escaped the prison in July and was recaptured in January.
