It’s been a bright start to the season for Swansea City.
As things stand, Steve Cooper’s side currently sit sixth in the Championship table, just two points adrift of the automatic promotion places after 11 games of the season.
There is of course plenty of time left in the season, with little time between games, meaning Cooper may be forced to rotate his side as the campaign goes on.
As a result, with something of a young squad at his disposal, and his past experience working with academy players, it may not be a big surprise if Cooper was to turn to some of those in Swansea’s youth team to help get them through certain parts of the season.
With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at two of Swansea’s academy players, that fans of the club may well need to keep an eye out for in the not too distant future.
Any player who signs for a club from Real Madrid is likely to generate a fair amount of excitement at their new home, and those associated with Swansea will no doubt be hoping for the same from Govea sooner rather than later.
Having joined the Swans from the Spanish giants back in the summer of 2018, injuries have restricted the Ecuadorian left-back to just a handful of youth team appearances for the Swans.
However, the 21-year-old recently returned to training after his latest layoff, so he could soon be back in action, and with his contract set to expire at the end of this season, he may well be determined to earn a new contract in Wales, meaning he could be well worth keeping an eye on in the next few months.
Did these 17 players ever score a league goal for Swansea?
Another international prospect within Swansea’s youth ranks who is already showing the level of potential he possess, is Al-Hamadi.
The striker netted five times in 12 outings for Swansea’s Under 23s side last season, something that has not gone unnoticed, with the striker already winning caps and scoring for Iraq at the same age group.
It seems therefore, as though Al-Hamadi’s progress is moving rather quickly, meaning it may not be a huge surprise to see him knocking on the door of Steve Cooper’s senior side in search of a full first-team debut in the not too distant future.
