Swansea City have made a strong start to this year’s campaign under the management of Steve Cooper, as they look to win promotion back into the Premier League.
The Swans are currently sat fourth in the Championship after their opening 14 matches of this year’s campaign, and they’ll be keen to take their strong run of form into the hectic, and potentially season-defining festive period.
One player that has played his part for the Swans this term is midfielder Kasey Palmer, who signed for the club on loan from Championship rivals Bristol City.
Palmer has chipped in with three goals in all competitions this term, and it remains to be seen as to whether he has a long-term future with the Robins, having signed for them from Chelsea.
Speaking in an interview with Dai Sport, Palmer revealed that he couldn’t settle at a club whilst out on loan from Chelsea, and insisted that he needed to ‘break that loan mould’.
“It becomes a cycle. You go out on loan, you come back to Chelsea, and then you know you’re going somewhere else. You can’t really settle.
“I felt like I needed to get out of Chelsea and break that loan mould. It’s important to have that stability, especially with me having a little boy and another one on the way.”
The midfielder went on to reveal that he would be open to making his loan at Swansea City a permanent move in the future.
“To find a permanent home and somewhere I can build on performances rather than getting into a good place and then having to move again would be ideal.
“Hopefully I can settle in Swansea and crack on with getting my career back on track. If the opportunity came to stay at Swansea, I wouldn’t turn it down.”
Palmer and his Swansea City team-mates are set to return to action on Wednesday evening, when they take on an in-form Middlesbrough side.

I’m not surprised to hear of this.
Palmer has made a relatively strong start to life with Swansea City, and he’ll be hoping he can play his part in their bid for promotion into the Premier League this season.
The midfielder had a tricky few spells out on loan whilst with Chelsea, and it’ll be interesting to see if he has a future at Bristol City when his loan with the Swans is due to conclude.
You would imagine that the Robins won’t want to sell him to a Championship rival, but now that Palmer has admitted that he wouldn’t turn down a permanent offer at Swansea, Bristol City could have their hands forced.
