Swansea City forward Liam Cullen continued his prolific goalscoring form on Monday evening as he netted all four goals during the Under 23s’ 4-0 victory over Everton.
Cullen has been the stand-out performer for the Swans’ Under-23 side so far this term, with the 20-year-old having now netted a total of 17 goals this campaign, while he has scored 10 of these efforts in his last four appearances for the youth side.
The Wales youth international will now be knocking on the door for a first-team spot after completing his ascent through the club’s academy ranks, with Swans boss Steve Cooper having already given opportunities to Ben Cabango and Jordon Garrick.
Cullen was linked with a loan move to join Cypriot side Pafos earlier this month, but there have been no further developments regarding this potential switch, with this meaning he looks set to remain in South Wales until the end of the season.

Plenty of Swansea fans have now been responding to suggestions that Cullen has now done enough to earn a call-up to the senior fold following his prolific displays, with Swansea only having two senior strikers in Rhian Brewster and Borja Baston.
One Swans fan suggested Cullen cannot be far away from the first team following his hat-trick against the Toffees.
Here are some of the responses…
Nicholas Rees: Cooper did say they would get their chance
Richie Mccarley: It’s time to get the chance to shine. He is on fire. He’s our future 💯👍
James Morton: Should be given a chance in our first team squad although wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was sold as well.
Shaun Penhorwood: Has to be involved, he’s on fire.
Meanwhile, another supporter said the Swansea youngster should be involved in the first-team fold ahead of Borja based on current form.
Rhys Pritchard: Why not promote him anyway and play them both 👀😂
Steven Todd: Can’t see Borja going before 31st…can’t see Brewster being dropped….but definitely one for next season. Would definitely loan out to a team from division 1 or 2 as part of his progress.
Phil Hopkins: In a heartbeat
