Graham Potter can fix Swansea issue by securing Nottingham Forest raid in two months time

Published

It is safe to say Swansea City have had a less than sensational start to the season, but they currently sit eighth in the table, just two points of a place in the top six.

They have quietly gone about their business in typical fashion, archetypical of their manager Graham Potter.

Oliver McBurnie has been scoring the goals to lift the Swans further up the league after a not so impressive start while Joe Rodon has come into the first team and impressed so much he signed a new long-term deal this week.

At either end of the pitch, there has been good news for the Welsh side; it’s just in the middle third that they have lacked at times this season.

Their midfield is relatively young and inexperienced for this division, and that is really showing with their involvement not as prolific as that of the other areas in the side.

Jay Fulton and Matt Grimes are the two main players in the middle of the pitch for the Swans, and they could do with a bit of help and experience come January, should Potter’s men still be in and around the play-offs.

One signing that sticks out like a sore thumb that would be the perfect move for both the club and the player is if they can recruit Liam Bridcutt.

The Nottingham Forest man is desperately out of favour at the City Ground after a high influx of midfielders in the summer.

The 29-year-old has had to make do with just one minute of Championship football this term having featured heavily in the club’s cup competitions.

There is no view to a chance in the league for the midfielder who will be pushing for a move away in the New Year.

Should Swansea go for him, then he would command a first team place and could well be a vital cog in the machine not only for the rest to the season but for years to come.

Bridcutt suits the profile of a Swansea player and has all the attributes to succeed at the Liberty Stadium.

His range of passing is exquisite, and he would be the perfect player for the likes of Oliver McBurnie and Jefferson Montero to have feeding balls through to them.

His experience would be invaluable to the two younger players mentioned before, and he would only be improving what Swansea already have.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and Bridcutt could well be brought in from the cold and having a starring role for Potter’s men should he get the chance to move to the Welsh side.

It is a deal that makes total sense whatever way you look at it.

Swansea need a new midfield general that has been lacking since the days of Leon Britton and Joe Allen, and Bridcutt needs to escape his Forest hell.

Put those scenarios together, and you have the perfect transfer imaginable between a player and a football club.
