Leon Britton has agreed a new three-year deal with Swansea and hopes to spend the rest of his career at the club.
The 29-year-old midfielder still has just over 12 months to run on his current contract but Swansea were keen to get him tied down to a new one following an impressive season in the Premier League.
Britton has been with the Swans since 2002 and is hoping that he will be able to see out his career at the Liberty Stadium after revealing it is the only place to be.
The news comes as another big boost to Swansea after winger Scott Sinclair said earlier in the week that he hopes to pen a new contract at the end of the season despite interest from rival clubs.
Britton has also been attracting interest and boss Brendan Rodgers will be delighted to have him for another three years at least.
"We shook hands on Friday, so it's just a case of the club drawing up the paperwork," he told the South Wales Evening Post. "I want to stay here as long as I can, hopefully the rest of my career, I'm absolutely over the moon with it.
"The whole package of the club is great. We play football in a unique way and I think the players appreciate that.
"If you left Swansea to go to the majority of the other clubs in the Premier League, you wouldn't enjoy it as much - you'd be taking a sideways step.
"The manager and the lads here are fantastic, the training is great and it's a good environment to be part of. You would be silly to leave unless it was one of the top four."
