Swansea City star Nathan Dyer has signed a new four-year contract, keeping him at the club until 2020. 

The winger was loaned out for the second half of last season and picked up a Premier League winner's medal with Leicester City

New deal

Dyer only had one year remaining on his Swansea deal and with his Leicester move earlier this year, it was unsure whether manager Francesco Guidolin had the winger in his plans for the forthcoming season. 

The new deal will come as a relief for Dyer, who last week spoke of his desire to stay at the club for the remainder of his career. The 28-year-old signed for the Swans back in 2009 and is one of the club's longest serving players.

Dyer comments

As mentioned, the long-serving Swansea man was determined to remain at the club who "first gave him the chance" to show what he could do. 

Dyer claims that once he returned from Leicester, there was only "one thing on his mind", which was impressing his new boss and ensuring he didn't suffer life on the bench for this upcoming season. 

The player claims he has "always" seen himself being at the club and even went on to say "once a Jack, always a Jack!"

Tieing down players

Dyer is the latest in a long line of players who have committed their future to the club this summer. Last week Gylfi Sigurdsson also signed a four-year extension, ending speculation that he may leave the club before the end of the window. 

As well as key players signing new contracts, some of the youngsters have also put pen-to-paper. Modou Barrow, Adam King, Stephen Kingsley and Jay Fulton have all signed new deals in pre-season. 

Another boost for the fans, is the news that the club have rejected a bid from Everton for captain Ashley Williams
