Rodgers Awaits New Contract Talks At Swansea

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he'd like to stay at the club but has yet to have talks regarding a longer contract.

The Swans boss is currently on a 12-month rolling contract, but surely the club, now in the Premier League thanks to the manager, should be secured to a much longer contract. It'll only be a matter of time before other clubs will be looking for a new manager and Rodgers is sure to be considered having guided the Swans to the top flight on a tight budget.

Rodgers says that he's happy and that he 'loves it' at Swansea City and would sign a longer deal, but chairman Huw Jenkins has yet to invite him for talks about a improved and longer contract - the very least he deserves.

'I'm happy in my life and in my professional life,'

'I feel there is a lot of growth left in the club and I want to help. I love the city and I love being here.'

'When the board and chairman decide to maybe see me as the person to be here for a few more years, that is something they will do in time.

'Until that time comes, I have not thought about it so much. I'm just concentrating on making the club as successful as it can be.

'I hope to retain our [Premier League] status which is vital for us.

'And whether I get a new contract or not, until my very last breath here at Swansea City my quest will be relentless trying to make us improve every day on and off the field.'

'Until the moment comes when the club want to protect me for a longer period, there's no drama for me.'
