Jordi Amat has become the second Spaniard to sign a Swansea contract extension in as many days.

Amat has followed the example of his countryman Angel Rangel by committing to a one-year extension which will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until 2018.

"I'm so happy because it's important to know the club has confidence and faith in me," Amat told the official club website.

Swansea could take action after director reportedly calls Man Utd manager 'arrogant b******'

Swansea could take internal action against club director John van Zweden over remarks he reportedly made against Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.

Van Zweden is alleged to have insulted Van Gaal following Swansea's 2-1 victory over United at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, calling his fellow Dutchman an "arrogant b******".

The remark was reportedly said to a Dutch TV crew that followed wealthy businessman Van Zweden to south Wales for Swansea's famous win ahead of a documentary which is due to be screened in Holland this week.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has now responded to the reports, describing Van Zweden's supposed remarks as "disappointing" given the good working relationship the club has built up with Barclays Premier League rivals since winning promotion from the Championship in 2011.

"It is disappointing that one of our directors has apparently made a statement in the media in relation to a manager of another football club," Jenkins said.

"Our football club prides itself on having a good working relationship with all Premier League clubs, managers and staff.

"We feel we have built up that good relationship over a number of years and will continue to work hard to preserve our image within the Premier League and the game in general at all costs.

"If any of our directors behave in an inappropriate and unprofessional manner not befitting this football club then they will be dealt with internally and appropriately.''
