​Swansea City winger Jefferson Montero has revealed that he may return to his homeland of Ecuador following a largely unsuccessful loan spell at Spanish club Getafe.

The 28-year-old has been blighted by injury problems, and although he now appears to have recovered, it seems that there is not a future for the player at either ​Swansea or Getafe.

Speaking to Fox Sports, as reported by ​Walesonline, Montero revealed that although his game-time has been limited, he is still thankful to Swansea for the role they have played in helping with his recovery from injury.

"It's a bit complicated (the current situation), but I also have to highlight some very good things, because I've been injured for a year and a half, the time I was in Swansea City, and I've recovered here, they've helped me," he said.

"The situation is a little delicate, it seems that I did not enter into the plans of the coach, he has talked directly with me and on that subject I am very respectful."

The most likely course of action appears to be a return to Ecuador, but Montero acknowledges that he must respect the wishes of his current employers.


"Long ago I had offers from Ecuador and Mexico, but I'm here in Getafe," he said.

"I respect my team. Until last week I had proposals from Emelec and from Liga de Quito, but it does not depend only on me. For me, but for other aspects, there are more people who have to give the okay. For me I went (to Emelec), I'm happy to go back to my country, grab the rhythm I want, now I'm free of injuries."
