"Throughout the season when I wasn't playing I was getting approached by other clubs, constantly, as well as trying to play footy. That's (contract) the last thing on your mind at the time," he said.
"It's things in the media coming out about that, your teammates seeing that too, it can be weird, but lucky for me I just put it aside and focussed on what was at hand."
But he never wanted to leave after forming a bond with the rest of the young Swans. He said the spending times in hubs over the past two years had been great for building relationships.
"I always wanted to stay, I've only spent two years and love it here," he said.
"How much time we spent together, the tough times of being away from home and we're all in it together. We got a great group of young blokes. We're a tight-knit group and the last thing you want to do is leave that after only two years."
