MacDonald Signs New 2-Year Contract

MacDonald Signs New 2-Year Contract

Shaun MacDonald has signed a new 2-year contract at Swansea City.

The 22 year-old midfielder has extended his stay at the Liberty Stadium despite receiving an offer from League One side Yeovil Town, where he played 31 games last season during a loan spell at Huish Park.

The former Wales under-21 international has struggled for first team places at Swansea City but he told the Official Site that he's now looking to 'push on' at the club following a helpful spell at a lower League club.

'I really enjoyed myself at Yeovil,''

'There are some really nice people there and the likes of Terry Skiverton, Darren Way, Nathan Jones, Ben Roberts and physio Simon Baker helped me a lot.

'They made me feel at home; gave me a pat on the back when I needed it and encouraged me a lot.

'Last season I realised I had to get out of Swansea and play football on a regular basis again. Yeovil gave me that chance and I think it has made me better, stronger and wiser to push on at Swansea City.

'I had a few offers to play elsewhere, but I think everyone knows how much I love Swansea and the people. I suppose the easy decision would have been to go and play regular football in League One, but I wanted to come back and give it another go at Swansea.

'I've got aims and ambitions and I am confident in my own ability. Now I can't wait for pre-season to start so I can work hard towards establishing myself in the first team.''


You have to give credit to the local lad for staying on at his hometown club. He was an important player for Yeovil, he could have easily joined the Glovers knowing he'd get regular first team football but instead he's looking to make a name for himself with the Swans in the Championship.

Lets hope he can prove his true potential and quality next season.

I'm still not convinced he'll ever be able to be a regular for us in the Championship
