Tom is desperate to return to the level (Premier League) he reached with Sunderland and I’m delighted he’ll be trying to do that with Swansea City.He’s a better and more mature player than when he first arrived at the club. He’s extremely talented and full of skill – we’ve all seen that this season.
I’ve no doubt that Tom is a player of Premier League standard and I’m delighted he’s committed himself to the club.’
