ENTRY POINT

Check out the latest moves in the Premier League at Transfer Central.

Jonathan de Guzman is staying at Swansea after agreeing a further season-long loan from Spanish outfit Villarreal.

The Villarreal midfielder has agreed a further year's loan after helping City to a top-10 Premier League finish and Capital One Cup success last term.

De Guzman scored twice in that Wembley win over Bradford, and his performances last season earned him a first international cap for Holland.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup questioned the club's lack of business earlier in the summer, but news of a deal follows the permanent signings of Jordi Amat and Jose Canas.

Chairman Huw Jenkins said: "Everyone is happy the loan is continuing. Then Jonathan will review his long-term future next summer."

De Guzman spoke warmly of his first year in south Wales in a recent interview.

He said: "We played well in a lot of games. We played good football and it's refreshing playing in a team that has a good football mind. I'm very satisfied with what happened. We did very well - we were very creative. We really put Swansea on the map."
