3 players Swansea City must tie down to contracts this summer



Swansea City have finished tenth in the Sky Bet Championship and have enjoyed a steady first season back in the second tier, following their relegation from the Premier League last season.

Graham Potter will be looking to considerably strengthen his squad in the transfer market this summer, to give the team the best possible chance of challenging for promotion next season.

The Swansea boss will already have an idea of potential new signings and will know which players are not in his plans for next season.

Swansea currently have seven first-team players who are out of contract at the Liberty Stadium in the summer and Potter faces plenty of important decisions over the futures of his players.

Here are three players that Swansea City must tie down to new contracts this summer…

Daniel James

Daniel James has had an outstanding season for Swansea in the Championship, scoring four goals and providing eight assists for his teammates in 31 league appearances.

His impressive performances for the Swans have attracted the interest of several clubs, including Premier League giants Manchester City and Spurs.

The 21-year-old came close to leaving the club in the January transfer window and it would be a massive boost if Swansea could get him to sign a new contract.

It would mean that they would be able to cash in on him in the summer, rather than losing the Welsh international who has 12 months left on his deal.

Leroy Fer

Leroy Fer has been an influential player for Swansea City in the Championship this season, despite facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with an injury.

The Swans captain is an experienced midfielder and is a big influence on the pitch, but came close to leaving the club in the summer.

His potential availability on a free transfer is sure to attract attention from rival clubs in the summer, but Swansea should do everything they can to keep him at the club.

Wayne Routledge

At the age of 34, Wayne Routledge is one of a few experienced players in an otherwise very youthful dressing room at Swansea.

The experienced winger has been an important player for the Swans this season, making 21 appearances in all competitions.

Routledge admitted recently that he is hopeful of extending his stay at the Liberty Stadium beyond this season and Swansea should try to take advantage of this by offering him a new deal.
