Jonjo Shelvey has signed a new four-year contract at Swansea.

23 year-old Shelvey, who was capped once by England, has made 77 appearances and scored nine goals since joining Swansea from Liverpool for £5million in the summer of 2013.

The midfielder had two years left on his original deal but has penned fresh terms that will see him remain at the Liberty until the summer of June 2019

The 27-year-old has agreed a three-year deal with the club from Portugese side Braga. Eder - whose full name is Ederzito Antonio Macedo Lopes - scored 10 goals for his home side last year, helping them finish fourth in the Primeira Liga. He scored his first international goal in a 1-0 win over Italy last week.

His arrival will boost Garry Monk’s attacking options which already includes Bafe Gomis and summer signing Andre Ayew. He is the fourth player to be signed ahead of next season.

Swansea target best ever league finish

Having already passed their best Premier League points tally, Swansea City need one draw from their last two games to ensure their highest ever top flight finish.

The Swans sit eighth as they go into tomorrow's match against Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium. A point there, or in next week's season finale at Crystal Palace, would see them secure that spot, with sixth place and a Europa League spot still within their grasp.

Boss Garry Monk - who would be the highest placed English manager should Swansea finish eighth or higher - has spent recent times batting off questions about his future at the club. But he insists his focus is on helping the Swans make history tomorrow.

The Welsh side, who are bidding to win four successive Premier League games for the first time ever, could see striker Bafetimbi Gomez restored to the starting side for the first time in a month. Former front man Wlifred Bony is set for a first return to the Liberty Stadium since signing for Manchester City earlier this season.

Monk: 'Today showed exactly what we're about'

Arsenal dominated the game at the Emirates Stadium and created a number of excellent chances in the second half but it was the visitors who grabbed a late winner after Bafetimbi Gomis's 85th-minute header was ruled to have crossed the line by the goal decision system.

The visitors held on through the four minutes of stoppage time - despite being put under pressure by Arsenal - for their third successive win, one which leaves them just one point behind seventh-placed Southampton with two matches remaining.

Seventh place would be enough for Europa League qualification for Swansea should Arsenal beat Aston Villa in the FA Cup final on May 30.

Swans boss Monk said he was not focusing on Europe yet, but would see how the last two games of the season pan out.

I don't focus on that. What will be will be and we'll just keep pushing.

I said that before the the game, over the weekend, the good thing about playing on Monday night was that we saw the results and that the places above us had opened up with the results, so why shouldn't we be pushing for that? Why shouldn't we be pushing those teams above and go on the hunt for them.

I think today showed exactly what we're about and how we think about each game and we'll take the next two games and whether that takes us, then great... if not we'll have to assess again in the summer.

Swansea City full back Kyle Naughton will miss the rest of the season after damaging ankle ligaments during his side's 3-1 win over Hull on Saturday.

Naughton, who joined the Swans in January from Tottenham Hotspur, was carried off in the second half after David Meyler's tackle which saw the Hull player sent off by referee Andrew Marriner.

Initial investigations ruled out a break but further scans have show significant ligament damage which will keep Naughton out for around six weeks.
