Shelvey's new contract a good move for player and club

Jonjo Shelvey was a stalwart for Swansea in 2014-15, appearing in 31 matches.

Swansea's concentration on squad building isn't just about adding new talent. The addition of players like Andre Ayew, Franck Tabanou and Eder has been exciting to watch, but these players have been brought in to supplement rather than replace the existing squad. With that in mind, Jonjo Shelvey's new contract extension is every bit as important to the future of the club as his new teammates should prove to be.

Shelvey's move to Swansea from Liverpool in the summer of 2013 was greeted with mixed...

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire

The summer transfer market is already being shaped by players whose previous clubs proved unable or unwilling to keep them when their contracts were expiring.

Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, James Milner, Danny Ings and Glen Johnson have all moved on this summer and the window next year will be no different.

As a host of players enter the final year of their deals, coveted footballers can find themselves in an even more enviable position when they are able to enter the market without...

Andre Ayew signing is a coup for Swansea

Swansea's new signing Andre Ayew has scored 44 league goals for his previous club in Marseille.

Pele once said that an African nation would win a World Cup before the year 2000. He was wrong, but he did recognise the rising star of African football. The quarterfinals are as far as Africa has gone in football's biggest contest, with Ghana the nation to do so most recently, in 2010.

Fittingly, one of the greatest African footballers of all time was also a Ghanaian: Abedi Ayew, christened Abedi Pele after the Brazilian great in recognition of his skills. On Wednesday, Abedi Pele's son, Andre...

Swansea are aggressively recruiting targets for next season's ambitions

Garry Monk is aiming to improve on Swansea's eighth place finish from last season as Europa League qualification is a target for next season.

After a fantastically successful first full season as Swansea manager, Garry Monk is not about to rest on his laurels. He has already started shaping next season's squad a mere week and a half after this season's finale.

While the gaze of the football world turns toward the Champions League final, Monk is instead fixated on this August. He has already extended defender Neil Taylor's contract, released goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel and lined-up potential deals for a new left-back and goalkeeper.

Ki, Cork standout performers for Swansea in 2014-15

Garry Monk's first full season as Swansea boss was an unexpected success. Sure, the Swansea board have a proven eye for talent, but for a top-flight team to appoint a manager with no experience whatsoever was still a bold move. It paid off, as Monk led his Swans to their highest-ever finish and best-ever points total in the Premier League.

Here's how the players rated over the course of the season.

Swansea enjoy fine Premier League campaign under Garry Monk

With the Premier League season over, here's a look back at Swansea's campaign as thoughts turn towards the summer and next season.

Your season in a sentence and final grade: A-


Doing the doubles. Swansea became the first team since Chelsea in 2009-10 to do the double over both Manchester United and Arsenal in the same season and just the third team in Premier League history to do so at all. Beating the big boys is generally seen as an unexpected perk for the top flight's smaller sides;...
