Dyer, 25, joined Swansea from Sheffield United on a permanent basis in 2009 after impressing while on loan.

The winger, who had one year left on his previous terms, has gone on to make 157 league appearances for the Swans, scoring 12 goals.

Dyer, scorer of a brace in the League Cup final win over Bradford, told the club's official website: “I’ve been here four years now, and I wanted to stay at Swansea.

"I didn’t even think about going anywhere else, so it is nice to get it all sorted. We’ve made a lot of progression here as a club, and I feel I have progressed too.

"I am still trying to improve as a footballer and I feel I can do that here. I think the club can continue to improve. We have made some quality signings and the squad strength is very strong now.

"You look at the potential of the club when you are making key decisions like this, and I don’t see the club going downhill in any way. I can only see it going up and up."
