Cooper is likely to hand a number of Swansea’s young players a chance in the first-team next season, and that could prove to be a move that pays off, with the Swans having a number of players that have proved to be a success from their academy.

They’ll be hoping to make a timely return to the Premier League next season, and it will be interesting to see how Cooper copes in his first senior job in club football.

But which youngsters could be in line for a run in the Swansea first-team next season?

Liam Cullen: 

Cullen scored ten goals for the Swansea development team last season, and is a player that will be full of confidence heading into next year’s campaign.

He made his under 18’s debut when he was just 13, and made his first-team debut in Swansea’s defeat to Crystal Palace last season.

Ben Cabango:

The central defender spent the first-half of last season out on loan with Welsh champions, The New Saints, where he was a regular for them, and also scored his first senior goal in their Champions League qualifiers.

He then returned to Swansea for the second-half of the season, and featured a number of times for the under 23’s, before he signed a two-year-deal with the Championship club.

Brandon Cooper: 

Cooper has been impressive for the Swansea under 23’s side last season, and made his first-team debut for the Swans in their defeat to Crystal Palace.

He’s been at the club since he was six years old, and he’ll be keen to follow in the footsteps of fellow Welsh defender, Joe Rodon who broke into the first-team in last year’s campaign.
