​Routledge signs Swansea extension

Wayne Routledge has signed an extension with Swansea City.

The English winger has put pen to paper on a one year contract that will see him continue his journey with the club.

The 34-year-old has already played 260 times since joining them from Newcastle United in 2011.

Routledge spoke to the club's official website about the news and said: "I am going into my ninth season with Swansea City. Just saying that puts a big smile on my face.

"I had a few clubs earlier in my career but then I found Swansea City, and Swansea City found me. I love playing for the club and I love being here.

"It was an emotional night at the Liberty in our final home game. There were a few tears because I didn't know if that was the last time I would play at the Liberty.

"But now I can look forward to preparing for next season."
