Joe Allen's agent says that Swansea have discussed a new contract with him
The Swansea City midfielder has put in some impressive performances this season and it appears that the Swans are interested in securing him on a longer term deal to try and secure his future at the Liberty Stadium.
Speaking to the Evening Post, Glenn Corcoran said "Joe still has the rest of this season and another year on his contract and he fully intends to honour that
"We do get inquiries about him and some Premier League clubs have been in touch, but we just pass them on to Swansea.
"It's always nice to get that interest because it tells you that you're doing something right.
"But Joe's focus is only on Swansea.
"Brendan has talked to us about the possibility of a new contract.
"He phoned me after the Wigan game (in October) and said he would like to get round to offering Joe something.
"I was a bit surprised the call came as early as it did because most clubs these days tend to leave it until the final year of the present deal.
"But Joe is a big asset for Swansea, they are pleased with him, and Joe will be happy to discuss a new contract.
"No date has been set to start talking and whether it happens now or towards the end of the season I don't know, but we said we would get together at a convenient time.
"Joe is a great lad with a great attitude who wants to get better," he added.
"He wants to carry on being part of the Swansea team pushing for promotion and he is improving all the time playing for the club. Joe had a difficult season last year because of a few injuries. They hampered his progression, and I think he is still building his fitness now.
"But he has started to play more frequently and he is enjoying playing under Brendan.
"He is playing regularly for a club who play good football, which is important, plus Joe has been at Swansea a long time and they have been very good to him."
