Taylor delighted to commit to Swans
1st June 2015
Neil Taylor revealed it was an "easy decision" after the defender signed a new four-year contract at Swansea City.
The 26-year-old had a year remaining on his previous deal but has now put pen-to-paper to keep him at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2019.
Taylor made 36 appearances in all competitions last season as the Swans finished eighth in what was a record-breaking campaign in SA1.
And the defender is now looking forwards and committing his future to the club.
"It was an easy decision," he said. "I'm glad we've managed to get it done early - both myself and the club wanted it to happen I'm really happy and focussed on Swansea.
"We've been so successful in recent years and the club is really moving forward now. Last season was our best yet - we have a young, hungry manager and everything is progressing here both on and off the field.
"The training ground is being developed at the moment and each year we seem to be making big strides. But we know that next season this group of players is able to make another big mark on the Premier League and we're hoping we can do great things again.
"I think we'll strengthen again this summer, so as a player there is no other place you would want to be right now."
Taylor will now link up with the Wales squad as Chris Coleman's side prepare for a crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Belgium in Cardiff on June 12.
And the left-back is hoping to cap a fine season at club level with another impressive showing for Wales.
"It's a massive game," he said. "Since the win in Israel we have been looking forward to facing Belgium and if we can get a positive result then it puts us in a great position.
"For me personally, last year was a great season. It was one that I needed and I managed to prove to myself that I can still play at this level, which was important."
