Swansea City loan start Jonathan de Guzman

Comments (4)

JONATHAN de Guzman has reiterated that he wants to stay on at Swansea City.

The midfielder's prime focus for now is Holland's World Cup second-round clash with Mexico this weekend.

But de Guzman expects to sort out his club future when his country's run in Brazil comes to an end.

Swansea boss Garry Monk is keen to re-sign de Guzman after his second season-long loan stint at the Liberty Stadium came to an end in May.

And the 26-year-old says that despite suggestions from Villarreal that they want him back, he would prefer a return to the Premier League.

"Swansea City have loaned me from Villarreal me for two years and the club had already said that we will speak after the World Cup," de Guzman told Dutch magazine Voetbal International.

"But I still have a two-year contract with Villarreal, they are back in the Primera Division and the conversations I've had with them felt good.

"They have got plans for me but at the same time I am still playing in for the Oranje and we are doing well so you do not know what the future will bring.

"Villarreal are aware I prefer to stay in England and I think Swansea will try to take me again, definitively.

"These are worries for later - the Oranje comes first and that's where my focus is."

    Good to hear such positive statements rather than the 'maybe/if' stuff that seems to come around at this time of year
