Barely-seen Swansea man should look at the 19/20 season as a fresh start

Published

Graham Potter has had a satisfactory first season in the job at Swansea City, but will be planning for a play-off push next season.

Swansea are in a precarious position in mid-table that means they will not go up or down, rendering the remainder of their season pretty boring.

They will have a chance to give minutes to some youngsters and fringe players, though, which will delight the Liberty Stadium faithful.

The problem for Swansea this season has been inconsistency – they have looked excellent on their day, but poor at times.

One player who has disappointed has been Yan Dhanda, who joined the club from Liverpool U23’s in the summer.

On his very first appearance in senior football, Dhanda scored to earn Potter’s men a dramatic 2-1 win over Sheffield United with one of his first touches in the game.

That was back in August, sending the away end at Bramall Lane into bedlam, but his Swansea career has been stagnant since then for one reason or another.

Overall, he has made just four Championship appearances, featuring for 109 minutes in total, which isn’t good enough.

Dhanda is still only 20, and he has been flourishing for the youth sides, but he joined Swansea for first team football.

Despite all this, the Dudley-born midfielder will be looking at the 2019/20 season as a chance to have a fresh start at the club.

He will feel that he can become a regular on the bench at the very least, and impact Swansea, hopefully driving them on to a better season.

If he can get a good summer under his belt, Potter may take notice of Dhanda, and promote him back to the first team.

Otherwise, a loan move down a division may be the best thing to do, as he cannot afford another season of stagnation in the reserves.

One thing that may work in his favour is the inevitable sale of Daniel James, and the potential departure of some of the ageing midfielders, leaving Dhanda with a chance to step up.

Whatever happens, he should look at next season as a clean slate, where he should be hoping to play more regularly.
