Swansea City academy graduate Connor Roberts has claimed there is 'more to come' from him after signing a new contract with the club that will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until June 2022.
Roberts, who enjoyed a fruitful loan spell at Yeovil Town in 2015/16 before two much less successful spells with Bristol Rovers and Middlesbrough in the Championship, broke into the first team in January and hasn't looked back since.
He is now a staple for the Swans at right-back, and has figured heavily in Ryan Giggs' Wales side.
Speaking to the club's official website following his new deal, the 23-year-old proclaimed: “I’m over the moon to get it done. Now I can concentrate on playing and improving as an individual and as a team.
“Even though I’ve signed this contract there is more to come from me.
“It didn’t really happen for me at Bristol Rovers and Middlesbrough. I didn’t get much of a chance to play. But I came back and it’s been a remarkable turnaround playing for Swansea and Wales."
Footballers are often known for being disloyal, but that's not always the case as players like Totti and Griezmann have shown.— 90min (@90min_Football) November 22, 2018

Despite his spectacular rise, Roberts is not getting complacent: “People can say I have made it, but when I speak to my family and partner I say it’s just the beginning hopefully.
"I’ve had a good few months, but I want to keep playing well, improving and proving I’m good enough and worthy of a place in the team. If I want a good, long career here then that’s what I have to do.”
The defender also admitted his pride at making it at his hometown club, as well as outlining his ambitions for the club in the future: “Everyone wants to play at the top level, so to do that again with Swansea – as a local boy – would be brilliant.
"The next few years give me a chance to stay in the team, continue improving as a player and hopefully, the end goal is to be back in the Premier League by the time my contract is up."
