Alan Tate will not quit Swansea but will fight to establish himself in boss Michael Laudrup's plans.

Defender Tate has returned to the Liberty Stadium following a loan spell in the Championship with Leeds United, where he made 11 appearances.

The 30-year-old told The Sentinel: "I have come back feeling fit and I am just trying to get back into the squad and into the team.

"Obviously the team have been doing very well so it's going to be hard to get back in, but at the end of the day I am not a quitter so I will be here giving it a go.

"This is my club. This is where I want to be.

"Who knows what happens in the future. Like I said when I went to Leeds, nothing is forever - everyone's playing days come to an end at a club.

"It happens to everyone at some point, but I would like it to come to an end on my terms."
