The defender insists he's committed to the cause at Swansea.
"You want to put the white shirt on week-in, week-out and when you're not doing that it is pretty hard to take.
"But I've been in the game long enough to know that I'm not going to throw my toys out of the pram or cause trouble because it doesn't benefit anyone.
"I want the club to do well and if you want to be successful you must have competition in the squad.
"You want everyone to do well because it benefits the club, but all the players are trying their hardest to get the shirt."
