Winger Nathan Dyer has signed a new four-year contract with Swansea which will keep him with the Welsh side until 2017.
Dyer played a big role when Swansea won the Capital One Cup last year as he scored twice in the final.
Dyer told the club’s official website: “I’ve been here four years now, and I wanted to stay at Swansea. I didn’t even think about going anywhere else, so it is nice to get it all sorted.
“We’ve made a lot of progression here as a club, and I feel I have progressed too.
“I am still trying to improve as a footballer and I feel I can do that here.
“I think the club can continue to improve. We have made some quality signings and the squad strength is very strong now.
“You look at the potential of the club when you are making key decisions like this, and I don’t see the club going downhill in anyway. I can only see it going up and up.”
“When I came from Southampton it was hard moving on as I had been there since I was a youngster,” he said.
“But the way Swansea took me in – the club, the fans, the staff – has allowed me to improve a lot more and settle very easily.
“This is my home now. I am very settled here.
“It is a family club, and I think a lot of players thrive because of that.
“The memories I have had from the past year have been phenomenal. It has been a whirlwind year.”
