Swansea - Wayne Routledge has signed a new contract with Premier League outfit Swansea City, keeping him at the club until 2019.

The 32-year-old's previous deal was due to expire in 2018, but he has extended his stay by a year, with an appearance clause which could see him stay at the Swans until 2020.

"The club wanted me to stay here and I wanted to commit myself further. It was a no-brainer," Routledge told the press.

"There was recent interest from other clubs, but for me there wasn't really a decision to be made about my future here.

"For someone who has been at a lot of clubs and has moved around a lot, it's a nice feeling to have finally settled.

"I've been here since our first season in the Premier League and I'm personally very proud of what we have achieved so far. It's panned out so well.

"The new contract could take me to nearly ten years at this club. It's been a really enjoyable time of my career and life, but hopefully there are more good times ahead."

Swansea will be aiming to continue their impressive form after recording their first ever win over Liverpool at Anfield when they welcome Southampton to the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday.

Kick off is at 21:45.
