Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has agreed a new four-year contract at the Liberty Stadium.
Shelvey helped Swansea to a record Premier League points total of 56 last season – scoring three goals in 35 appearances in all competitions.
The 23-year-old former Liverpool man will now remain under contract with the Welsh club until 2019, having had two years left on his original deal.
“It’s been on the cards for a few weeks and I’m glad to get the papers signed so I can now concentrate on my football,” Shelvey told the club’s official website.
“When my agent mentioned it to me I said ‘when can we get it signed?’
“It’s an honour and privilege to sign for another four years at Swansea City and give the fans back the support they’ve shown in me.
“I feel I’ve got better. I thought I did well in my first year. I didn’t start off too well last season – I had a sticky patch – but at the back end of last season I really kicked on.
“Hopefully I can get my head down in pre-season and hit the ground running for the start of the Premier League.”
Shelvey, who has one England cap to his name, moved to Swansea in 2013 for £5million.
