Cameron Carter-Vickers says he has loved every moment of his time with Swansea City after his loan spell came to an end.
The Tottenham defender returns to his parent club after enjoying a fine season in SA1, making 30 appearances in all competitions.
The United States international had to be patient over the opening half of the season, but capitalised fully on Joe Rodon's metatarsal injury to partner Mike van der Hoorn throughout the final months of the season.
Carter-Vickers kept his place once Rodon returned to full fitness, and leaves the Swans having relished his spell with the club, admitting he would be open to a return at some point in the future.
"I have really enjoyed it, I've loved every moment to be honest," he said.
"The boys have been great and the gaffer has been top class, he really helps players improve working under him.
"To gain this experience of a different way of playing can only help me progress.
"I feel I have learnt a lot, and I am pleased to have played so much and I would love to come back one day, although obviously there are a lot of decisions around that which would not be mine.
"But it's something I would be open to if the opportunity were to be there in the future."
And Carter-Vickers had warm words of praise for manager Graham Potter and the Swansea City faithful.
"The gaffer is very good tactically, he likes us to play out from the back and keep possession. It's enjoyable to play that way and playing for the fans has been great too," he said.
"They are always loud and supportive of the team. It's a boost to play well in front of them, they are willing us to do well."
