Swansea City full-back Neil Taylor has ended speculation over his future by agreeing a new four-year deal with the club.
Wales international Taylor, previously linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, impressed at left-back this season following Ben Davies’ departure to Tottenham.
Taylor was a regular for Garry Monk’s side as they achieved a club-record placing of eighth in the Premier League and has been rewarded with a new deal that keeps him tied down until 2019.
The 26-year-old’s previous contract was due to expire at the end of next season, although he had been widely expected to agree fresh terms.
“It was an easy decision. I’m glad we’ve managed to get it done early – both myself and the club wanted it to happen I’m really happy and focused on Swansea,” he told the club’s official website.
“We’ve been so successful in recent years and the club is really moving forward now. Last season was our best yet – we have a young, hungry manager and everything is progressing here both on and off the field.
“We know that next season this group of players is able to make another big mark on the Premier League and we’re hoping we can do great things again.
“I think we’ll strengthen again this summer, so as a player there is no other place you would want to be right now.”
Taylor will now link up with Chris Coleman and Wales for next week’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Belgium.
