AC Milan target Ki hints towards Swansea stay

Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-yueng has hinted he may extend his six-year stint at the club.

The South Korean is out of contract at the end of this season and has been linked with AC Milan and West Ham United.

And the 29-year-old has revealed it could a "big possibility" that he signs a new deal to remain at the Liberty Stadium.

"I had a conversation with Carlos in January because I wasn't sure about my future with only six months left on my contract," said Ki.

"We had a good chat and, because I am a professional, I promised him I would work hard to the end of the season.

"I don't want to focus on any other teams. I want to make sure Swansea stay in the Premier League – that's all I want to do.

"I can think about my future after the final game of the season. I can't decide now because now it is time to work for the team.

"I have to help Swansea stay in the league – it is always the team before me. I am an honest guy. I don't lie to anyone, the manager or my team mates.

"I gave him my promise that I would keep on working for him.

"I can't predict my future. I am not sure if any teams will come in for me. After the season I have to think about that.

"I have been here for six years and I want to be respectful to Swansea. I have good memories with the fans, my team-mates and the club.

"I can't say 100% what my decision will be, but I will be here until the summer and then I will have to talk to the club and see what happens.

"There is a big possibility I could sign a new contract here, that's why I can't say what I am going to do after the season ends."
