Tremmel inks new deal with Swansea

7 February 2013 19:51

Swansea City goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel has signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal with the Premier League club.

The 34-year-old's contract was set to expire at the end of the season but he has now committed to the Swans until the end of the 2014/15 campaign, with the option of a further season.

Tremmel has often played second fiddle to first-choice keeper Michel Vorm since joining in 2011 but a succession of injuries to the Netherlands international has seen him make 18 appearances this term.

The former Bayern Munich man is keen to be part of the ever-improving fortunes of the Welsh outfit.

"Since the first day I joined this club, I knew something special was happening," Tremmel told the club's official website.

"I have been at a number of clubs but the feeling here between the players, staff and supporters is different. I feel very, very good here. Of course, last season I didn't play the amount of games I had hoped for but this season has been a completely different story on the pitch for me.

"I have played in a lot more games and big matches against the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool to name but a few.

"I think it has been good for myself and the supporters. I've been able to build momentum with a consecutive run of games this season, while the fans can now see what I am capable of.

"I am contributing a lot more, which is great, and when the opportunity came along to sign a new deal here I was very happy to do that.

"The club has been on a remarkable rise over the last few years and it really is a nice story - I was keen to be a part of that story, so the new contract is great news for me because I feel I have a lot more to give this club."
