Gomis rules out Swansea exit

Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis has put to an end speculation over his future by revealing he is happy to stay at the club.

Bafetimbi Gomis has ruled out leaving Swansea City before the transfer window closes.

The France international has regularly been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium after a frustrating start to his time at the Premier League club.

Gomis was largely restricted to substitute appearances after joining the Welsh outfit as a free agent in June until leading scorer Wilfried Bony joined Manchester City last month.

He has started all six of the club's fixtures since the turn of the year - when Ivory Coast international Bony initially departed for Africa Cup of Nations duty.

West Ham and Arsenal were among the clubs linked with a move for the 29-year-old former Lyon frontman, but Gomis revealed on Monday that he is happy to stay at the club after holding talks with manager Garry Monk.

He tweeted: "I have decided to stay with Swansea. I wanted to share this with you before the end of the transfer window. It's the best choice for me.

"Even if i was sad before because I didn't play a lot. Now everything is different.I believe in this team and his project.

"I have spoken with the coach and I have his confident (sic) and he has mine. I am lucky to play and live to Swansea."
