Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has re-iterated he would be keen to keep Jonathan de Guzman at the Liberty Stadium.
De Guzman is on a season-long loan from Villarreal.
He said: "This is complicated as he is on loan and it depends what Villarreal are doing.
"They want to get back into La Liga and what would happen if they do?
"It is not just a case of picking up the phone, making a call and getting everything done in 10 minutes, so we will have to see what happens."
