    Former skipper Van der Hoorn, who made 125 appearances and scored six goals for the Welsh outfit, told the club’s website: “Swansea will always be a special place for me.

    “I came here and it was the first time I had not been at home, that I had been abroad, in my career.

    “My son was born here. It will always be a special place for our family and I will come back. I will want to show my son where he was born, and we have made a lot of friends here.

    “We will try and come and visit the games, we will see what the future holds. I cannot believe these four years have happened so quickly.”

    Van Der Hoorn was made captain by then boss Graham Potter in 2018/19 before the armband passed on to current skipper Matt Grimes under Steve Cooper.

    “He has everything a striker needs to get, and that is very important.”S
