Jamie Paterson is looking forward to continuing his journey at Swansea City after signing a new deal until the summer of 2024.

The 30-year-old had one of the best seasons of his career in 2021-22 with nine goals and nine assists, while his 51 key passes and 42 successful dribbles were the best among the Swans' squad.

But, speaking to Swans TV, he said he’s looking forward to a bright future after extending his stay.

“I’m delighted,” said Paterson.

“I’m glad that it’s sorted and I can just enjoy my football here now. Sometimes, some places are just a good fit.

“'The Swansea Way' does suit my style of play, and I have always looked at the way Swansea play and I’ve always been attracted to that, and I’ve ended up here.

“Last season went well but I want to maintain that and improve even more.

“We showed a lot of positive signs last season – there were ups and downs as always – but the way we play, it’s a difficult way to play.

“You have to be conditioned and be very fit and you have to be really brave on the ball.

“The gaffer came in, stuck to his principles, and I think it was a successful first season and we’re looking to build on that now.”
