Tate: I Want To End My Career With Swansea City

Alan Tate has told BBC Sport that he wants to end his footballing career at Swansea City.

Yesterday's stand in skipper has signed a new 4-year deal at the club which will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until 2013.

While former manager Roberto Martinez wrongly said he'd have to be forced out to leave, there's no doubt that Alan Tate means every word when he says it:

'I know the manager before said he'd have to be forced but I will have to be forced out.

'I love the club, I love area and its the area I want to live in when I pack in playing.'

'It was nice to get the contract sorted but there was never an issue,'

'There was never in any doubt that I wanted to stay. This is a club that I love so I am proud to be captain when Garry is not available.'


Tate headed home a late equaliser to get a point yesterday at home to Watford and he added:

'It was nice to steal the headlines from Trunds!'

'Lee is a good lad and did well.

'If he maintains the hunger he showed on his debut, he'll get goals. His headed chance was strange for him because heading it is not his strong area.

'Lee was brilliant here in his first spell so has a massive advantage compared to any other players else coming here. He loves the club and the area and has the desire to do well.

'But I was pleased with my goal to save a point as we pulled a point out after the jaws of defeat. In my opinion, justice was done because we deserved something from the game.'
