Swansea City boss Martin confirms Jamie Paterson extension
Russell Martin has confirmed Jamie Paterson will remain a Swansea City player until at least the summer of 2023 after the club triggered a one-year contract extension.
The midfielder joined the Swans as a free agent in the summer and has made a tremendous impact at the Swansea.com Stadium.
The 30-year-old has got eight goals and four assists in 22 appearances this season, striking up a potent attacking understanding with top scorer Joel Piroe.
Paterson joined the Swans on a one-year deal, and that included the option of a 12-month extension.
And head coach Martin – speaking ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Southampton – announced that the former Bristol City man will spend at least another season in SA1.
“With Jamie Paterson we have triggered the extension a little bit earlier, so that is done,” he said.
“That’s good news and it is an automatic 12-month extension.”
