Routledge signs new Swans contract

25th September 2014

Swansea City winger Wayne Routledge has pledged his future to the club after signing a new one-year extension at the Liberty.
Routledge's new deal seems him commit to the Swans until the summer of 2018, which will take his service at the club up to seven years.
The 29-year-old, who was among the club's leading performers last season, has been in hugely impressive form again this term.
Routledge set up the winner for Gylfi Sigurdsson in the opening-day win over Manchester United while his stunning strike against West Brom was nominated for the August goal of the month.
"He deserves it because in my time here he's probably been our most consistent performer - and he's still performing," said Swans boss Garry Monk.
"His time before coming here was well documented but he's now found a home, somewhere he can be himself."
The Swans became the former England Under-21 international's ninth club after joining from Newcastle United in August 2011.
And his form since arriving at the Liberty has led to calls for him to earn a national call-up to the national team, with Roy Hodgson having recently watched the Swans in action against Southampton.
