Swansea defender Angel Rangel has signed a one-year extension with the club, keeping him at the Liberty stadium until the summer of 2017, reports Sky
The 32-year-old has been one of the cornerstones of Swansea’s incredible rise up the leagues, and was a regular in the starting lineup too. His consistent performances in his eight years with the Welsh outfit make him one of the club’s best ever signings.
Rangel was brought to the Liberty stadium in 2007 by former manager Roberto Martinez, and has since been playing second fiddle to new-boy Kyle Naughton at right-back, but is still happy to stay with Garry monk’s side.
His last start for City came in mid-January, where he has since been forced to bide his time and wait for opportunities. Rangel understands the club needed to find a successor as he approaches the business end of his career, and there’s no other club the Spaniard wants to be with until he hangs up his boots.
Such vast Premier League experience makes him a very useful squad player to keep, and Monk will know him well from the time spent as a teammate in the defence.
