Swansea City looks set to receive a massive boost soon with the news that Rodgers is soon expected to sign a new three-year contract.

The Swansea manager and chairman have had talks in recent weeks regarding a new and improved contract compared to his current rolling 1-year deal.

It’s the least he deserves having achieved promotion to Premier League at the club within just one season.

It’s also encouraging to know that Rodgers is looking to stay and aims to make us an established top flight club.

‘I spoke with the chairman today and we have agreed everything in principle, we just need to draft up the paperwork and be presented with it over the weekend, then it will be signed and done and that will be fantastic.

‘It was clear to me I wanted to be here. There was very little to discuss and I will be proud to move forward with the project.

‘Ultimately my job is to make Swansea a sustainable Premier League club, that’s the challenge.

‘It looked a massive challenge to get promoted, but since then we have shown we can compete at this level. Although we are riding high and playing well, the objective is to stay in the league, that would be monumental and give the club more money to invest in the team.

‘But the goal is firstly to make Swansea sustainable and you can obviously build from that.’
