The transfer status of each Swansea City player as monitor stars Wolves, Leeds United, Burnley and Reading

Swansea City have made an encouraging start to their summer transfer business.

Four players walk through the door, with Matty Sorinola, Harry Darling, Nathan Wood and Wasiri Williams joining Russell Martin and Co in South Wales for next season.

These signings are unlikely to be the only arrivals in SA1 before the start of the new campaign, with departures also likely if Swansea are to strengthen further in this window.

Links with Swansea players are already emerging and are expected to rage over the coming weeks. Here we take a look at the transfer status of every member of Martin’s first team.

Andy Fisher

Swansea’s number one stopper and a key man for Martin. His distribution last season was his biggest attribute and important to the way they want to play. I’m not going anywhere this summer.

steven benda

Swansea will sell the German if an acceptable offer arrives. The stopper is keen on regular playing time.

Lewis Webb

The youngster will likely be in and around the first team but another keeper is expected to be brought in this summer.

Nathan Wood

I have just signed from Middlesbrough on a free transfer. Martin was delighted with his capture and is likely to push for a first-team spot this term.

Matty Sorinola

Signed on loan from Belgian side Union SG last week, can play both left and right of defense and further up the pitch. A regular in Martin’s XI is his likely fate.

darling harry

Martin was desperate to bring in the centre-back from former club MK Dons. Will be in the starting XI at Rotherham United on the first day of the season.

Joel Latibeaudiere

Ended last season strong but is now the subject of transfer interest from Burnley. Can be sold if the right offer arises.

Ryan Bennett

Surplus to needs. Did not attend Swansea’s pre-season camp at Pennyhill Park last week and is no longer training with the first team at Fairwood. Reading kept an eye on him.

Ryan Manning

Martin is a huge fan of the Republic of Ireland man’s versatility. Probably a mainstay again next season.

Kyle Naughton

Wrote a contract extension just before the end of the season. Ready to anchor the backline of the 2022/23 campaign.

Tivonge Rushesha

He is currently recovering from a serious ACL injury and will not play again until the end of the year. One for the future, though.

brandon cooper

League One clubs are interested in his services. A move on loan would be beneficial, especially in light of the arrivals of Wood and Darling.

Ben Cabango

Currently recovering from ankle surgery. Came by leaps and bounds under Martin last term and should be part of plans for the future.

Nathanael Ogbeta

Frustrating start to his Swans career when he arrived injured from Shrewsbury Town. Will face a fight for his place now that Sorinola has arrived.

Matt Grimes

Skipper is one of the first names on the roster and signed a new contract before the start of the year. As always with Swansea, if a significant offer came in for Grimes he would likely be sold.

Jay Fulton

Barely featured last season and a South Wales departure seems the most likely. However, his salary could be an obstacle.

Liam Walch

Had an unsuccessful spell on loan with Hull last season. Like Fulton, his salary could prove a stumbling block for potential suitors, as could his injury record.

Jamie Paterson

Just signed a contract extension in SA1. The events of last January, when a contract dispute led to him training away from the first team, seem a very long time ago now.

Daniel Williams

His loan spell in Ireland was cut short due to injury. Returning to Fairwood in preseason with his teammates, Martin is expected to make an imminent decision on his near-term future.

Flynn Downes

One of Swansea’s crown jewels. Recently linked with Premier League sides Southampton, Wolves and Crystal Palace, while Leeds United are long-time admirers of the former Ipswich man. Valued between £11-12 million. Would be sold if this evaluation is respected.

Ollie Cooper

The striker said last week he was keen to continue after a successful loan spell with Newport County. Martin is a fan of the youngster, who is keen to break into Swansea’s plans but may have to seek another loan first.

Olivier Ntcham

Back with the team after a long summer break. I hope for a good pre-season and to stay fit and have more impact this term.

Jordan Garrick

Had a successful season with Plymouth Argyle at Home Park, just missing out on the play-offs. Said to be keen to return to Devon.

Morgan Whittaker

Like his fellow loanees, the striker will move on this summer if the right offer arrives. Portsmouth stalks him.

Liam Cullen

As above. Pompey is also interested in Cullen, who spent the second half of last season with Lincoln City, alongside Whittaker.


Another striker of interest to the Fratton Park club. Sheffield Wednesday are the latest to be linked with the former Wigan man. Its versatility could be considered a real asset.

Joel Piroe

The Dutchman has been linked with Leicester City and Watford and as all Swansea fans will concede, like Downes, the striker will be sold if a decent offer arrives.

Michael Obafemi

He really came out of his shell after Christmas and reached a burning form. It has sparked links with Brighton but the former Southampton man is likely to be held back if money is brought in elsewhere.
