Michu: Signing New Deal Was An 'Easy Decision'

Michu: Signing New Deal Was An 'Easy Decision'

Michu says signing a new contract at Swansea City was an 'easy decision' as he extends his stay at the club until 2016.

It's a massive boost for the club and it happens on the same day that they've booked a place in the Capital One Cup Final.

Michu, bought for just £2.2m, has been one of the best Premier League signings in many years after scoring 16 goals in all competitions.

While many people might have thought that the player would be keen to move on to a bigger club, Michu says he's happy at the club and has never enjoyed his football more. He told BBC Sport:

'It was an easy decision for me, I am living a dream here at Swansea.'

'I'm probably enjoying my football more than ever. It's easy to play with this team and I have the chance to reach the first final of my career,'

'I'm really happy here in the city with the people, the club and the fans. Everyone has been so nice to me since I arrived.

'I think the club are happy with me because they have given me a new contract. I am certainly happy with the club.''


Talking about the transfer speculation - about a possible departure in this transfer window simply because of his goalscoring form, Michu added that he is not interested in it, and prefers to concentrate on helping the team:

'I'm happy here,'

'I've read and listened to all the speculation, but it doesn't interest me, and that's why I've signed a new contract.

'I'm enjoying myself too much because the team always tries to play football. All I think about is the next game and helping Swansea be successful. This is my life.''
