Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he’s not thinking about the leaving the club after signing a new deal.

The 39 year-old gave us the news every Swans fan wanted to hear after he put pen to paper on a new 3 and a half year contract.

Rodgers also says he is not thinking about leaving the Liberty Stadium, he was delighted to sign a new contract and that he ‘loves’ the city.

“I`m delighted to sign the new deal,“

“And I hope the club and supporters feel it is still a good fit for everyone.

“I very much appreciate what Swansea as a city, a club and supporters have given me and my family in my time here, so signing the new contract was one of the easiest decisions of my life.

“I couldn`t have dreamt of things going much better when I came into the club. You are normally judged objectively over time, but I was aware that I needed to make an impact in a much shorter period.

“However, both the club and myself have grown hand and in hand – and the story continues.

“I can only promise that over the next three-and-a-half years I will continue to fight for the club and its people to help us become a sustainable Premier League club.

“My determination to bring more and continued success on and off the pitch is an on-going process, while I recognise the responsibility of carrying out my duties for the club with values of integrity, honour and passion.

“These values allow me to focus on my overall mission which is to ‘inspire the city` and I`m very proud to continue to fight in the great name of Swansea City.”

‘I love the city and the football club, that’s why I was happy to sign.

‘Leaving is not in my thinking, I am happy and I want to move the club forward.’
