It's prime time for Swansea City winger Jefferson Montero
23rd September 2016
Jefferson Montero is looking forward to the prime years of his career after signing a new contract at Swansea City.
The Ecuador ace will remain at the Liberty until the summer of 2020 after penning a new four-year deal, which is a two-year extension to his previous terms.
Blessed with blistering pace, Montero has proved a popular figure among Swans fans following his arrival in 2014 from Mexican side Morelia.
And he's looking forward to more "wonderful years" at the club after committing his future to the Swans.
"I feel at home here," said the winger. "The people are really warm and lovely within the club as well as the fans.
"I'm happy on the field and I think when you're happy on the pitch everything else goes hand in hand. I'll always be there for whatever is needed on the pitch.
"I've just turned 27 and right now I'm at a stage where I need to make the most of myself as much as I can. I'm sure they'll be wonderful years with the club, with the fans that are always supporting us and with my colleagues, of course.
"I hope I can stay here for many years."
Buoyed by his new contract, Montero now hopes to play a part in helping the Swans end Manchester City's perfect record this season when the two sides meet again at the Liberty.
Pep Guardiola's team edged past the Swans on Wednesday night in SA1, with the EFL Cup holders continuing the defence of their title following a 2-1 victory.
The visitors sit top of the Premier League having picked up five victories in as many games, while the Swans are looking to record a second top-flight win of the campaign.
And Montero believes that the Swans can put an end to Manchester City's stunning start when they go head-to-head on Saturday afternoon (3pm).
"They are top of the league and they'll want to win," added Montero. "Let's hope we can get the points at home because we need them.
"We'll try to hurt Manchester City as much as we can and if I play I'll do my best.
"I think we are improving every day and the team will get positive results and we can all show the good football that Swansea have always had."
