Carl Jenkinson: Defender made long-awaited return

The 29-year-old initially struggled for goals after signing from Lyon in the summer of 2014.

He said in January that it was “possible” he could leave the club and was linked with a move to other Premier League sides.

However, in an interview with L’Equipe, he said: “I see myself here next season. I am very happy in Swansea. You never know what might happen, but no (I am not considering my future).”

Since the departure of Wilfried Bony in January, Gomis has been Swansea’s main striker and has netted three goals in his last two matches.

“I am happy because, as with every striker, it is important to find the net,” he added. “I have more playing time than earlier in the season and I have been able to find my legs and the pace of the competition and get used to my team-mates.     

Gomis has won 12 caps for France and played in the Champions League for Lyon, but says a lack of European football next season would not affect him.

“There is no regret in coming here,” he said. “There is a culture and a philosophy of play that I like, and for which I signed. I am not mistaken.

“There is no European competition but there is no real shortage and I’m happy to have discovered the Premier League after playing in France. I want to start the new season without any transition period and prepare myself in a good condition.”
