Tate pens new deal with Swansea

Swansea City announced Wednesday that year contract with the Welsh club.

Tate, 28, is likely to be sidelined for up to six months after breaking his leg in a freak golf cart accident, but confirmation of a new contract should ease the pain slightly.

"I'm delighted to sign the contract because it shows the club has a lot of faith in me," explained Tate. "It will take me well into my thirties and who knows what will happen beyond that, although obviously I'd like to stay even longer."
