Gomis happy at Swansea

Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis has revealed he has no plans to leave the club this summer.

Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis has revealed he has no plans to leave the club this summer.

Gomis, who signed a four-year deal with the Swans after leaving French Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyonnais on a free transfer last summer, has been amongst the goals since Wilfried Bony left for Manchester City in January.

The 29-year-old Frenchman has scored four goals in his last six English Premier League appearances after tallying just one from his first 21 league matches in English football.

“I see myself here next season,” Gomis told L’Equipe. “I am very happy in Swansea. You never know what might happen, but no [I am not considering my future].

“I am happy because, as with every striker, it is important to find the net. I have more playing time than earlier in the season and I have been able to find my legs and the pace of the competition and get used to my team-mates.

“There is no regret in coming here. There is a culture and a philosophy of play that I like, and for which I signed. I am not mistaken.

“There is no European competition but there is no real shortage and I’m happy to have discovered the Premier League after playing in France. I want to start the new season without any transition period and prepare myself in a good condition.”

Zidane: Real keeping tabs on Sterling

Real Madrid Castilla boss Zinedine Zidane has confirmed Real Madrid are monitoring Raheem Sterling’s situation at Liverpool.

The England international, 20, has put off contract talks with the Reds until the end of the season, as speculation continues to mount regarding the future of the 20-year-old star.

“We know who Raheem Sterling is, and of course we are monitoring him as a player,” Zidane said.

“There are very few players in the world who can improve the Real Madrid squad, so it is going to make sense we monitor the progress of the best young players in the world.

“We monitored [Gareth] Bale for over a year, the same with Isco and also [Raphael] Varane.

“We monitor many of the best young players in Europe, then if we feel they have something to offer Real Madrid we will contact their club and try and make the next step.”

Sterling, whose current deal at Anfield runs through June 2017, has totaled six goals and seven assists in 29 league appearances (28 starts) for Brendan Rodgers’ side this season.
