Swansea keeper Gerhard Tremmel has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with the club. The 34-year-old German, who joined Swansea from Red Bull Salzburg in August 2011, said: "Since the first day I joined this club, I knew something special was happening.
"I have been at a number of clubs, but the feeling here between the players, staff and supporters is different. I feel very, very good here. Of course, last season I didn't play the amount of games I had hoped for, but this season has been a completely different story on the pitch for me.
"I have played in a lot more games and big matches against the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool to name but a few. I think it has been good for myself and the supporters. I've been able to build momentum with a consecutive run of games this season, while the fans can now see what I am capable of.
"I am contributing a lot more, which is great, and when the opportunity came along to sign a new deal here I was very happy to do that.
"The club has been on a remarkable rise over the last few years, and it really is a nice story - I was keen to be a part of that story, so the new contract is great news for me because I feel I have a lot more to give this club."
