Swansea City have confirmed on their official website that midfielder Josh Sheehan has joined Sky Bet League Two side Yeovil Town on loan for a second time.
The 20-year old had a spell at Huish Park last season, playing 13 times as they were relegated to the fourth tier, and Glovers’ boss Paul Sturrock has moved to bring the midfielder back to the club on an emergency loan deal to help keep Yeovil in the Football League.
Sheehan, a Wales Under-21 international, is the current captain of the Swans’ development squad and is very highly-rated at the Liberty Stadium, but has only appeared once for the Swans since signing professionally three years ago, in the Capital One Cup against Rotherham United last season.
After returning to Wales in the summer after his first spell at Huish Park, the midfielder was given a new two-year deal at the Liberty Stadium, with manager Garry Monk clearly seeing him as a top prospect for the future.
The deal with Yeovil will see Sheehan remain with the Glovers for three months, but that may be extended should all parties be happy.
Sheehan played in Yeovil’s 2-1 home defeat to Hartlepool United this afternoon, which leaves Sturrock’s side 21st in League Two, with just seven points from their opening nine games.
