I know there has been a lot of speculation (about my future), but I’ve always said that I am happy here and I never had any doubts I would stay.
I am delighted to sign the new deal and I’m already really looking forward to next season. I hope there will be some very exciting things happening with the team and with the club in Europe.’
The Swansea City chairman, Huw Jenkins, has described Laudrup's contract extension as a 'major boost' for everyone involved in the club.

You can never guarantee how things will work out when you employ a new manager, especially after the success we’ve had in recent seasons, but I think everyone has seen for themselves that Michael has helped take this football club to another level.
He is a pleasure to work with because he shares the same philosophy as everyone at this football club.
He has ensured that we have progressed again this season and I am convinced his knowledge, experience and expertise will ensure we keep moving forward for the next few years.
Swansea City have announced they have signed a contract extension to keep Michael Laudrup at the club until 2015. In a statement the Premiership side said he had signed a one year contract extension for the next two campaigns.
There had been speculation linking the Dane to several clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid.
