Jonathan de Guzman: Willing to join Swansea permanently

The 25-year-old has impressed for Michael Laudrup's men on a season-long loan from Spanish side Villarreal and scored twice in Saturday's 3-1 win against Stoke.

The Dutchman is enjoying life with the Swans and insists he would love the chance to stay at the club.

"If there is an opportunity I would really love to stay," he said.

"I am very happy here. It's a great group, not just the players but the guys around the place, the staff and the fans.

"It's a family club and I really like that. There is something good happening here and I like being part of it."

De Guzman's form has attracted the attentions of Dutch national coach Louis van Gaal and his assistant Danny Blind was at the Liberty Stadium at the weekend.

The player added: "Yes, I was aware he was there - that's why I scored the two goals!

"They are keeping an eye on a couple of the Dutch players here and I think I had a decent game. I am very happy with how it went, so we'll see."

Pressure

De Guzman has the chance to impress by reaching the final of the Capital One Cup if Swansea can complete a win over Chelsea after a 2-0 first-leg victory at Stamford Bridge.

And he is confident of doing just that despite the pressure of getting the club to Wembley.

"There is pressure every game, every training session," he said. "This group is desperate to do well and you can feel that.

"Everyone is working very hard. It is a great achievement so far but the season has a long way to go.

"We certainly respect Chelsea but there isn't any fear.

"We are home and we are 2-0 up, playing at home, which is probably where we play our best football, so we have to keep the momentum. I think we have a very good chance."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
