De Guzman back on loan at Swansea

Swansea have confirmed the signing of Jonathan de Guzman on another season-long loan, with the Dutch forward returning to Liberty Stadium for the 2013-14 campaign.

De Guzman, 25, enjoyed an impressive first season in South Wales, scoring eight goals including a brace in the Capital One Cup final as the Swans won their first ever major trophy.

His re-signing was one of Michael Laudrup’s main priorities in the off-season and the Swansea boss has now got his wish after a deal was agreed with Villarreal.

“Everyone is happy the loan is continuing,'' Swans chairman Huw Jenkins told the club’s official website. ''Then Jonathan will review his long-term future next summer.''

De Guzman helped Swansea to a ninth-place finish in the Premier League in 2012-13 and the Netherlands international is raring to return.

“I had a great year at Swansea,'' De Guzman said. “The people around the club and the fans treated me well. It was not just the results we had; it was more about showing we can also compete with the big teams. We played better against the bigger teams.

“We played well in a lot of games. We played good football and it's refreshing playing in a team that has a good football mind. I'm very satisfied with what happened. We did very well - we were very creative. We really put Swansea on the map.''
