Nathan Dyer wants to finish career with Swansea City
3rd August 2016
Nathan Dyer has revealed that he expects to end his career with Swansea City after committing his future to the club until 2020.
Dyer today signed a new four-year contract with the Swans, which is an added boost for the club after Gylfi Sigurdsson penned an extended deal on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old, who has been with the Swans since initially joining on loan from Southampton in January 2009, fully intends to finish his playing career at the Liberty.
He returned to the club this summer following a loan spell with Leicester City, which saw him pick up a Premier League winners medal.
And the winger expressed his delight in extending his service to the Swans.
"I was on loan last season and I had a good year at Leicester - the experience I had was unbelievable," said Dyer.
"But I'm happy to be back here at the club that first gave me the opportunity to show what I can do.
"Coming back, there was only one thought in my mind - impress the new manager, speak to the chairman, get into the team and play games.
"I was going into the final year of my contract, so it was nice to sign a new deal. The new deal will keep me here until I finish.
"I have always seen myself being here. Once a Jack, always a Jack!"
Dyer's new contract will take him beyond a decade of service to the Swans.
He has made 271 appearances - 31 goals - during his time with the club, which has also seen him win promotion to the Premier League along with a two-goal man-of-the-match display against Bradford in the League Cup final.
And having played a key role in the club's recent success, Dyer now wants to push on under Francesco Guidolin.
"I came here when I was a lot younger, I've learned my trade and we've won and achieved so much.
"By reaching ten years with the club I will be following in the footsteps of the likes Alan Tate and Leon Britton. It's nice to know that is the situation.
"We've made history at this club, and to be part of that has been amazing for me.
"It has been an amazing road, but hopefully that will continue.
"I came back this summer having to show the manager what I am capable of as we hadn't worked together.
"It was nice to get together, speak to him and show him what I can do. He was impressed and wanted me to stay.
"Now we can all look forward to the season together."
