Flores signs three-year Swansea deal

6 April 2013 14:49

Swansea defender Chico Flores has signed a three-year contract at the Liberty Stadium, declaring he wants to stay 'for a long, long time'.

The 26-year-old has formed a strong partnership with captain Ashley Williams in the Swans' starting XI and has become a fan favourite in his debut season in the Premier League.

"I'm very happy, everything has gone better than I ever expected considering I only arrived in Wales in the summer," Flores told the club's official website.

"I have found it easier to settle here than when I moved from Spain to Italy. The language issue can still be difficult at times, but I'm getting there. My English is improving all the time and I have good communication on the pitch alongside Ash, who can also speak a bit of Spanish.

"In my debut season the club has won its first major trophy and is safe again for another year in the Premier League. It's been a fantastic experience and a massive achievement for the club, both individually and collectively.

"I had no hesitation in signing a new contract for a number of reasons, but mainly because I can only see the team and the club growing.

"We play good football, which I think suits me, and the warmth of the fans towards me has been unbelievable. To hear them singing my name is amazing; phenomenal. I love them all.

"If you put all that together, everything is perfect, and I hope to stay at Swansea for a long, long time."
