Michu has signed a new four-year contract with Swansea which will keep the Spaniard at the Liberty Stadium until 2016, the Welsh club have announced.

The 26-year-old forward has taken the Premier League by storm since joining from Rayo Vallecano for just £2million in the summer, scoring 13 top-flight goals so far this term.

His exploits had seen the Spaniard linked with a big-money move away from the Swans, but he has penned a deal to keep him in south Wales until 2016.

He told the official club website: "It was an easy decision for me. I am living a dream here at Swansea."
