‘Love to see it’, ‘Outstanding’ – These Swansea fans react as fresh contract terms agreed with senior player

Published

Swansea City are getting ready for a second-straight play-off campaign, but it hasn’t stopped them sorting out player contracts for next season.

Full focus will be on the pitch ahead of a crucial two games next month against either Brentford, Bournemouth or Barnsley, but one player in particular will have had a confidence boost going into it.

That’s because Kyle Naughton has had his contract extended by a further year to keep him at the Liberty Stadium until at least the summer of 2022.

The 32-year-old has been around for a while having made his breakthrough at Sheffield United as a teenager, and he’s been at the Swans since 2015 having joined them back in the Premier League days from Tottenham Hotspur.

Naughton has been a regular fixture at the club for the majority of his time, and for most of the current season he has been deployed as a centre-back with Connor Roberts cementing the spot as starting right-wing-back.

Does the Liberty Stadium have a higher or lower capacity than Oakwell?

In recent weeks though Naughton has returned to his natural home of right-back as Steve Cooper reverted back to a 4-2-3-1 formation, and if he features against Derby County this weekend, he will have made his 200th league appearance for the club.

There’s been a great response to the news to his new deal as Swans fans took to Twitter to react.
