John van Zweden: Swansea best investment I've ever made

John van Zweden is delighted with his investment in Swansea City.

The Dutch entrepreneur says the club would be worth huge money on the open market.

He paid €75,000 to rescue Swansea and revealed: "I could afford to lose that amount and twelve years later, it was the best investment of my life.

"It is a healthy club in the Premier League that is doing well. And if you see that Leeds United in a lower division were last week to be sold for £80 million then you have to think about that kind of money."
