Flores: New deal with Swansea

Flores: New deal with Swansea

Swansea have announced that Chico Flores has signed a new contract with the club that will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until June 2016.

The 26-year-old has been a regular at the heart of the Swans defence after making the £2million summer move from Genoa.

The Spaniard's previous deal was until 2015, but the club were keen to tie down the former Real Mallorca man for a further year.

"I'm very happy," the centre-half said. "Everything has gone better than I ever expected considering I only arrived in Wales in the summer.

"I have found it easier to settle here than when I moved from Spain to Italy.

"The language issue can still be difficult at times, but I'm getting there. My English is improving all the time and I have good communication on the pitch alongside Ash (Ashley Williams), who can also speak a bit of Spanish.

"In my debut season the club has won its first major trophy and is safe again for another year in the Premier League.

"It's been a fantastic experience and a massive achievement for the club, both individually and collectively.

"I had no hesitation in signing a new contract for a number of reasons, but mainly because I can only see the team and the club growing.

"We play good football, which I think suits me, and the warmth of the fans towards me has been unbelievable. To hear them singing my name is amazing; phenomenal. I love them all.

"If you put all that together, everything is perfect, and I hope to stay at Swansea for a long, long time."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
