The stopper will return to St James’ Park after two seasons on loan in Wales and following the Swans Championship play-off final loss.

"It's probably been the best two years of my life playing here. I've fallen in love with the place and developed so much," he said.

"I just wanted to get over the line for the city; I know how much they wanted us in that big league, so I'm absolutely gutted.

"I hope this isn't the last game I play in a Swansea shirt.

"The main thing is to sort out my next step; if that's in a Swansea shirt then brilliant but if it's not, I have to crack on and that's football.

"I'm a Swansea City fan now; I'll be looking out for their results straight away, but football's a funny game and anything can happen. We'll see what happens."
