Villarreal star Jonathan De Guzman has revealed he would consider returning to Swansea on a permanent basis.

The 25-year-old midfielder impressed last season during a loan spell in the Premier League and forced his way into the Holland squad in the process.

"My ears are always open," said De Guzman when asked if rejoining the Swans was a possibility. "I had a great year there. The people around the club and the fans treated me well.

"It was not just the results we had, it was more about showing we can also compete with the big teams. We played better against the bigger teams.

"We played well in a lot of games. We played good football and it's refreshing playing in a team that has a good football mind.

"I'm very satisfied with what happened. We did very well - we were very creative. We really put Swansea on the map."

De Guzman previously worked under Swansea manager Michael Laudrup at Real Mallorca and added of the Dane: "He knew my situation at Villarreal and he asked if I wanted to join Swansea. It was a no-brainer. I needed a breath of fresh air, and Laudrup gave that to me.

"I got game time and felt part of the team, which was important for me. It was a dream come true."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
