Wayne Routledge is happy to be repaying the faith shown by Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup.

The 28-year-old believes he has finally found the right home to fulfil his footballing talent under Laudrup - who signed a new contract on Friday tying him to the Welsh side until 2015 - in south Wales.

Routledge said: "I got the opportunity to play from the start of the season and I just carried it on from there.

"It's nice for the manager to show faith in me and this is the most settled I've been in my career. It's been going well this season and hopefully that can continue."
