Swansea full-back Angel Rangel has signed a one-year contract extension which will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2018.

And the 33-year-old Spaniard, who spent the first part of the last campaign as back-up to £5million signing Kyle Naughton, is looking to stay beyond the terms of his new deal, which will take him to 11 seasons with the South Wales club.

He told Swansea's official website: "It was a very easy decision to sign the contract - we did not have to talk for long. We all know the relationship we have - me with the club and the club with me.

"[Chairman] Huw Jenkins has always been very supportive in every single way, so I am delighted to have extended my contract for another year and I am looking forward hopefully to having more years at the club.

"This is my home now. This contract will take me to 11 years here and I am so pleased with that. I have a Welsh family and I feel as though I know the city and the country now.

"I am looking forward to staying here to continue playing football and in the future, I think I will be here as well."
