Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract and set his objective as keeping the Welsh club in the Barclays Premier League for its duration.

Rodgers put the finishing touches to the deal, having previously agreed in principle to stay on.

The 39-year-old said: "I'm delighted to sign the new deal. I hope the club and supporters feel it is still a good fit for everyone. I've been very pleased with my work over the last 19 months. I can only promise that over the next three and a half years I will continue to fight for the club and its people to help us become a sustainable Barclays Premier League club."
