Jonathan de Guzman, to the probable delight of Swansea fans, has expressed his desire to stay at the Liberty City stadium when his current year long loan from La Liga side Villarreal expires at the end of the season.
He has been a revelation this season netting eight goals in just 34 appearances from the centre of the midfield. He has been at the heart of the Swans midfield also contributing five assists in 30 league games as well as three assists in just six appearances in Swansea's victorious League Cup win.
Yet De Guzman is not letting speculation surrounding his destination next season as he told reporters: "There are still seven games to go, seven tough games, so I’m just concentrating on them.
"It would be good for me to stay here."
His inspired performances this year have even got him noticed by his national team. Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal, assisted by Danny Blind and Patrick Kluivert, spotted his excellent performances and called him up to the provisional squad for the Netherlands friendly against Italy and he made his debut coming on as a substitute.
He has pushed on from this and made his competitive debut in a comfortable win over Estonia and again playing against Romania.
Swansea will have to be quick if they are to keep De Guzman as Liverpool have shown an interest in recent weeks, according to reports. Villarreal are likely to sell with the club keen to raise funds and Liverpool are apparently confident in their ability to sign him for a cut price deal. Whilst De Guzman might be tempted by Liverpool's illustrious status and position, Swansea offer him regular football with a familiar manager.
It is more than likely De Guzman will be gracing the Premier League next season but at which club it remains to be seen.
