Monk Signs New 3-Year Contract For Swansea City

Swansea City skipper Garry Monk has signed a new 3-year contract at the club, according to the Daily Mail.

The 32 year-old said that he wanted to end his career at the Liberty Stadium. The former Southampton defender has experienced the entire journey of the club since joining in 2004 under former boss Kenny Jackett. Playing in League 2 back then, he's won League 2 promotion, the League One title and the Championship Play-Off final in May to get the opportunity to play in the top flight.

Before putting pen to paper on the new deal, Monk said:

"I`ve always said that`s what I wanted to do,"

"I`ve been on such a journey with the club from League Two to here and I don`t want that to stop.

"I`ve never made any secret of the fact I wanted to stay here, so to get the chance to do that is fantastic.

"I`ve been lucky enough to achieve a lot of my goals here. It would be great to be able to achieve another and make it 10 years at the club and finish my career as a Swansea City player.

"And I think I`ve earned that right. We`ve both come a long way from when I first signed, but I like to think I`ve played my part in that."
