Jonathan de Guzman says joining Swansea City on loan has been a 'turning point' in his career.
The Dutchman was struggling for games at current club Villareal, but a move to the Swans saw him playing Premier League football week in week out, which earned him a call-up to the Holland international squad last season.
Talking about joining the Swans, De Guzman, who is currently on his second season-long loan spell in South Wales, said:
'It's probably been the turning point of my career coming here,'
'I was getting minutes again and playing on a great stage in the Premier League.
'Then last February I got the call-up for the national team.
'It was a great year last year, and I'm working hard to improve on it.
'During the season playing week-in, week-out, I caught the eyes of one of the staff of the national team.
'They were impressed and then I got the call-up.'
de Guzman still says it's too early to say where he'll be next season:
'For the last three years I've been moving on after a year,'
'This is the first season I've stayed with the same team so it's been a lot easier for me to settle because I know people, the staff, the city and people around the stadium.
'I haven't thought about next season because this one is still young. We have a long way to go.
'After doing well last season, winning the Capital One Cup, of course I wanted to stay.
'We made that decision to get another year's loan and see how it goes and we'll see what happens at the end of the season.'
Michael Laudrup's Summer signings means it's an even more competitive midfield this season compared to last, and even fans' favourite Leon Britton is struggling to earn a regular first team place ahead of Canas and Shelvey, same too for de Guzman.
