Swansea have managed to tie down bargain goalscorer Michu to a new deal, warding off interest from major clubs around Europe.

Michu joined Swansea for £2.2 million from Spanish side Real Vallecano and has proved to be one of the best signings ever in the Premier League scoring 16 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

His performances for Swansea are expected to earn the hit-man a call-up to the Spain side for their upcoming friendly against Uruguay in February. 

The attacking midfielder has scored 13 goals in the Premier League this season, a tally only bettered by Demba Ba, Luis Suarez and Robin van Persie. Michu admitted that he did not consider leaving Swansea, before penning his new deal which will run out in the summer of 2016.

Michu told the club's official website: “I’m happy here.

“I’ve read and listened to all the speculation, but it doesn’t interest me, and that's why I've signed a new contract.

"I’m enjoying myself too much because the team always tries to play football. All I think about is the next game and helping Swansea be successful. This is my life," said the versatile attacker.

Michu is aiming to help Swansea reach the Capital One cup final by overcoming Chelsea tonight.

He added: “I am living a dream here at Swansea.

"I’m probably enjoying my football more than ever. It’s easy to play with this team and tonight I have the chance to reach the first final of my career."

The Spaniard has said his reasons for signing the new contract are because he has settled into life in Swansea, and everyone involved with the club has made him feel at home.

Michu said: “I’m really happy here in the city with the people, the club and the fans. Everyone has been so nice to me since I arrived.

“I think the club are happy with me because they have given me a new contract. I am certainly happy with the club.’’
