Jonjo Shelvey "honoured" by new Swansea City deal

Jonjo Shelvey reveals that he is thrilled to have signed a contract extension with Swansea City.

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has claimed that it is an "honour and privilege" to sign a new contract with the club.

The 23-year-old penned a four-year extension at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday.

Shelvey, who joined Swansea from Liverpool in 2013, scored three goals in 35 appearances last season.

"It's been on the cards for a few weeks and I'm glad to get the papers signed so I can now concentrate on my football," he told the club's official website. "When my agent mentioned it to me I said 'when can we get it signed?'

"It's an honour and privilege to sign for another four years at Swansea City and give the fans back the support they've shown in me.

"I feel I've got better. I thought I did well in my first year. I didn't start off too well last season – I had a sticky patch – but at the back end of last season I really kicked on. Hopefully I can get my head down in pre-season and hit the ground running for the start of the Premier League."

Swansea start the new Premier League season with a trip to champions Chelsea on August 8.
