Laudrup signs new Swansea deal

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has signed a one-year contract extension that keeps him at the Liberty Stadium until June 2015, the club have confirmed.

Laudrup has enjoyed a superb first season in charge of the Swans, guiding them to Capital One Cup glory and a place in the top half of the Premier League table.

The former Barcelona midfielder\’s initial deal was set to run out at the end of next season, but his decision to extend his contract through to June 2015 will alleviate fears he would depart for pastures new this summer.

\”We\’ve started something this season that I want to continue,\’\’ Laudrup told the club\’s official website. \”I know there has been a lot of speculation (about my future), but I\’ve always said that I am happy here and I never had any doubts I would stay.\’\’

With a Europa League campaign lying ahead for Swansea next season, the Dane wants to carry on the good work he has started.

\”I am delighted to sign the new deal and I\’m already really looking forward to next season,\’\’ he said. \”I hope there will be some very exciting things happening with the team and with the club in Europe.\’\’

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins had long made clear his desire to tie Laudrup to a longer-term deal and provide the club with more security. And he is delighted to have agreed terms with his manager as Swansea enjoy arguably the finest season in their 101-year history.

\”This is a major boost for everyone involved with Swansea City, from the players, staff and board of directors through to the most important people of all, our supporters,\’\’ said Jenkins.

\”You can never guarantee how things will work out when you employ a new manager, especially after the success we\’ve had in recent seasons, but I think everyone has seen for themselves that Michael has helped take this football club to another level.

\”He is a pleasure to work with because he shares the same philosophy as everyone at this football club. He has ensured that we have progressed again this season and I am convinced his knowledge, experience and expertise will ensure we keep moving forward for the next few years.\’\’
