Wayne Routledge pens one-year Swansea City contract extension

Wayne Routledge pens a one-year contract extension at Swansea City to keep him at the club until 2018.

Wayne Routledge has signed a one-year extension to his current deal at Swansea City to keep him at the club until 2018.

The 29-year-old, who joined the Swans from Newcastle United in 2011, has been among the Premier League side's leading performers in recent seasons.

"He deserves it because in my time here he's probably been our most consistent performer – and he's still performing," manager Garry Monk told the Welsh outfit's official website. "His time before coming here was well documented but he's now found a home, somewhere he can be himself."

Former England Under-21 international Routledge has featured six times for Swansea this season, scoring one goal.
