Itay Shechter has thanked Swansea City’s fans for an "amazing time" with the club.

The 26-year-old, who joined Swansea on a temporary basis last August, will return to German club Kaiserslautern when his loan spell officially ends next month.

And the Israel international has thanked everyone at the Liberty for ensuring his stint in South West Wales was an enjoyable experience.

“Since the day I arrived, I have been treated so well. It helps you settle so much better when you arrive at a new club like this," he told the club’s official website.

“I’ve enjoyed being part of this squad. We won the cup, finished ninth in the Premier League – it has been an amazing season.

“It was great for me to be part of the lap of honour too. It was a special day.

“I wanted to show respect to the supporters because they have been behind the team – and myself – all season, no matter what the result.

“If we win, draw or lose – it doesn’t matter because they always make so much noise and get behind the team.

“The season has been amazing for the club and the fans, and I have had an amazing time at Swansea too.”

Shechter featured 18 times under Michael Laudrup and netted his first goal of the season against Wigan earlier this month.
