Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer has signed a new three-year deal at the club, which will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until the end of the 2013-14 season.

Dyer explosive pace on the right-hand side helped the Swans win promotion to the Barclays Premier League, beating Reading in the Npower Championship playoff final.

The winger's form saw him pick up the Supporters' Player of the Year award and is the seventh player to commit his future to the club.

"I'm really pleased," Dyer said. "We've just to the Premier League and I want to be part of things.

"It's a great club so I'm happy to be here. Talks went well and it was nice and easy to sign a contract.

"We've made massive strides as a club and I don't see why I should want to go anywhere else.

"I can learn my trade here and keep improving as a player."


After being soundly beaten by Manchester City in their opening game of the season, Swansea fought to draw their first home game of the new campaign against Wigan Athletic, another side who like City, climbed the divisions to eventually reach the top-flight, a start that gives Dyer reason to believe the club can stay up in the division at the first time of asking.

"I think we will do well this season," Dyer added. "First off, we wanted to achieve our Premier League status and now we want to stay there.

"The rest is about progressing as an individual and hopefully I will keep pushing myself and become a better player.

"Everyone wants to stay, fight for their place and play as much as they can."
