Nathan Dyer has committed his future to Swansea City after putting pen to paper on a new four-year contract, as revealed by a report in the Daily Mail.

The winger spent last season on loan at Leicester City and picked up a Premier League winner's medal, but he has signed a contract to confirm he will be plying his trade at Swansea until he hangs up his boots.

Dyer is now the second Swans player to seal his future in a short space of time, with Gylfi Sigurdsson penning a new contract also, and the retention of some of his stars is bound to be a boost for manager Francesco Guidolin in time for the new campaign.

Speaking on his new contract, Dyer, who joined the club from Southampton in 2009, said: "I was on loan last season, and had a good year at Leicester and the experience I got was unbelievable but I'm happy to back at the club that first gave me my opportunity to show what I can do.

"I want to repay the club so it's nice to have signed a new deal."

"I was going into the last year of my contract but the new deal will keep me here until I finish (my career).

Dyer has undoubtedly played a key role in Swansea's successes of recent years, starring as the South Wales side sealed promotion to the Premier League in 2012, and their League Cup triumph a year later. When considering whether to prolong his stay at the Liberty Stadium, Dyer says it was an easy decision to make.

"I've always seen myself to be here, 'once a jack always a jack' so you can say, I came here when I was younger I've learnt my trade," the 28-year-old said.

"We've won and achieved so much and we've made history at this club.

"In pre-season I had to show the manager (Francesco Guidolin) what I was capable of because he hadn't known of me so it was nice to speak to him. He was obviously impressed and wanted me to stay.

"I'm excited with the boys here, I know there's been a few talks about people coming and going but hopefully that will settle down in the next couple of days and we can focus on the start of the Premier League."

Swansea can now look to aim high this coming campaign now that another key player has committed his future to the club.
