Gerhard Tremmel signs extension

Press Association

Goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel has become the latest player to commit his future to Swansea after signing a new 2½-year deal at the Liberty Stadium.

The 34-year-old's new contract, which includes the option of a further year, comes in the same week midfielder Leon Britton and defender Garry Monk signed extensions with the south Wales club.

"Since the first day I joined this club, I knew something special was happening," said the German, who joined the club in 2011. "I have been at a number of clubs, but the feeling here between the players, staff and supporters is different."

Tremmel only made a handful of first-team appearances under Brendan Rodgers, but has performed admirably for Michel Vorm during the current campaign and has helped the Swans reach their first major cup final after keeping two clean sheets in the Capital One Cup semifinal success over European champions Chelsea.

"The club has been on a remarkable rise over the last few years, and it really is a nice story -- I was keen to be a part of that story, so the new contract is great news for me because I feel I have a lot more to give this club," he said.
