De Vries faces his old club today, with Wolves already relegated.
He said: "I had some great years at the Liberty Stadium, great memories. Swansea deserve to be where they are at the moment, they've had a great season.
"A lot of the players have been there since League Two and to show their quality at Premier League level, and the way they play, is magnificent.
"I had a great connection with the supporters although it might be a little bit different on the weekend!"
With regard to his move to Molineux, De Vries said: "It's easy to look later on. I don't have a magic wand and no one can predict the future.
"There are no 'ifs' because I cannot turn back time and, at the time it felt the right choice. I'm sticking with that."
