Michu: Has signed a one-year extension to his Swansea contract

City's top scorer, who cost just £2.2m when he arrived from Rayo Vallecano in July, was previously contracted until 2015.

The extended deal will strengthen Swansea's hand if they are forced to field enquiries this summer for a player who has scored 13 Premier League goals in his first season, prompting speculation he might move on to a wealthier club.

Michael Laudrup said this month it would take a huge offer to land "the bargain of the season", and Michu told the Swansea website he is in no rush to go anywhere.

"It was an easy decision for me," he said. "I am living a dream here at Swansea. I'm probably enjoying my football more than ever.

"I'm really happy here in the city with the people, the club and the fans. I think the club are happy with me because they have given me a new contract. I am certainly happy with the club.

"I've read and listened to all the speculation, but it doesn't interest me, and that's why I've signed a new contract.

"I'm enjoying myself too much because the team always tries to play football. All I think about is the next game and helping Swansea be successful. This is my life."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
