Swansea City have undergone an extremely gruelling pre-season.
From losing Andre Ayew to seeing former manager Steve Cooper leave the club with just a couple of weeks to go until the new season, it has been a traumatic few months for the Swans who have enjoyed a reasonable amount of success in the past couple of years.
Two consecutive play-off finishes have taken the Welsh side agonisingly close to the Premier League in the last two years – but they may need a re-think as they prepare for life under a new manager, with no main goalscorer and potentially a new skipper with Matt Grimes looking set to leave the club this month.
In this gallery though, we’re focusing more on the here and now.
