Swansea City’s on-loan attacker Kasey Palmer has revealed that he would be open to a permanent move to The Liberty Stadium, should the opportunity arise.
Palmer joined Swansea on a season-long loan from Bristol City back in the summer transfer window, and has made an encouraging start to life at the Liberty Stadium.
The forward has made seven appearances for Steve Cooper’s side so far, scoring once in a 2-0 win over Stoke City at the end of last month.
Now it seems as though the 24-year-old is keen to increase those tallies for the Swans, beyond the end of this season.
Speaking about the prospect of making his move to Swansea permanent, Palmer told Dai Sport: “If the opportunity came to stay at Swansea, I wouldn’t turn it down.
“I’m out on loan again, but this is the club who have wanted me for a while and I believe and trust in the manager and club’s ambition. I can’t see why I wouldn’t want to stay here for longer.
“The move had been coming, but the timing of this one couldn’t have been better. Part of me thinks ‘What if it happened a year ago?’ but that’s football.”
Swansea currently sit fifth in the Championship table, just three points off an automatic promotion spot, and it seems as though their aims for the season suit Palmer well, as he added: “I have to repay the trust Steve has put in me from now until the end of the season. Swansea is a Premier League club. If we weren’t pushing for promotion then it would be a big concern.
“This year is a big year for me. Without putting too much pressure on me or the team, this is the season where I need to kick on and achieve the targets I’ve got in my head.
“When I’m 25 and 26, I want to be playing in the Premier League. I’ve had four or five years in the Championship at good clubs, but now is the time to get my head down and kick on.”
