Lukasz Fabianski delighted to commit to Swansea City
6th August 2015
Lukasz Fabianski is looking forward to continue progressing with Swansea City after committing his future to the club until June 2019.
The Polish international today signed a new four-year contract with the Swans following a successful debut season at the Liberty.
Fabianski was named Players Player, Best Newcomer and Away Player of the Season after collecting 13 clean sheets during the 2014-15 campaign.
And the 30-year-old was delighted to extend his future with the Swans ahead of Saturday's opening game at defending champions Chelsea.
"I am very happy here. Right from the very first day, everyone has been very nice to me and they've helped me settle in quickly," said Fabianski.
"For me it is a great place to work and continue improving as a player. I want to improve personally and as a group we have the same mentality.
"It's a great group to be a part of. Everyone is working in the same direction and we have a great understanding between each other.
"The way the manager sets up the whole environment is very good. He puts everything in place so that a player can concentrate fully on improving himself.
"It's another chapter for me. I must forget about what happened last year as I am focusing and preparing for the new season."
Following his successful campaign in SA1, Fabianski was linked with a number of clubs by the media.
But his decision to commit to the Swans will prove a big boost to the club - and the supporters - going into the campaign's opening fixture.
"It's nice to hear your name being linked with clubs because it means you must be doing your job well," he added. "But, in my mind, I want to continue here at Swansea.
"There's still a lot of work to be done, and I was always focused on this place rather than thinking about somewhere else. Nothing has ever crossed my mind other than Swansea."
Fabianski joined defender Neil Taylor, midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and manager Garry Monk in penning new contracts this summer.
And he believes the signings of Andre Ayew, Eder, Franck Tabanou and Kristoffer Nordfeldt will boost the Swans' hopes of matching last season's achievements.
"If we can achieve the things we talked about in pre-season then we can compete for a high position in the league," he added.
"All the ingredients are there. The team stayed together and we have improved the squad, which has been a massive positive from this summer."
