Flores signs new Swansea deal

Swansea defender Chico Flores has signed a one-year extension to his current deal, keeping him at the Liberty Stadium until June 2016, the Premier League club announced on Saturday.

Flores, 26, was signed on a three-year contract from Genoa at the start of the season and has become a key part of Michael Laudrup's defence.

Despite having the Spaniard tied down until 2015, Swansea were eager to fend off any rivals for his signature by prolonging his stay in Wales and it is a move that surprised the former Real Mallorca player.

"I'm very happy," he said. "Everything has gone better than I ever expected considering I only arrived in Wales in the summer. I have found it easier to settle here than when I moved from Spain to Italy.

 

"The language issue can still be difficult at times, but I'm getting there. My English is improving all the time and I have good communication on the pitch alongside Ash (Ashley Williams), who can also speak a bit of Spanish.
 
"In my debut season the club has won its first major trophy and is safe again for another year in the Premier League. It's been a fantastic experience and a massive a chievement for the club, both individually and collectively.
 
"I had no hesitation in signing a new contract for a number of reasons, but mainly because I can only see the team and the club growing. We play good football, which I think suits me, and the warmth of the fans towards me has been unbelievable. To hear them singing my name is amazing; phenomenal. I love them all.
 
"If you put all that together, everything is perfect, and I hope to stay at Swansea for a long, long time."\
 
Swansea travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich on Saturday.
