Spaniard Angel Rangel has signed a new three-year contract with Swansea City. The 30-year-old defender's original contract was due to expire next June.

Rangel joined the Swans in 2007 from lower-tier Spanish side Terressa and the new contract will take his service at the Liberty up to nine years.

He said: "I am settled here. I am enjoying my football, I have married a Welsh girl and i'm building a house in Swansea - I feel like a Welshman now. I am very happy on a personal and professional level. My new contract will take me up to nine years here and who knows what will happen after that."
