What is the latest news with Steven Benda’s situation at Swansea City amid Brighton and Wolves links?

Brighton and Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers are both monitoring Steven Benda as a potential option to come in as a backup goalkeeper, according to Football Insider.

Robert Sanchez and Jose Sa are both key assets as the first choice option with their clubs, and Benda has been identified as someone who could provide cover and potentially play in cup competitions.

John Ruddy left Wolves at the end of his contract this summer, and Benda, 23, could be someone to grow into the role behind Sa at Molineux.

The Seagulls signing Benda would enable them to keep developing the younger goalkeepers at the club via the loan system, with exciting glovesmen coming through like Carl Rushworth and Kjell Scherpen.

Benda endured a tricky 2021/22 campaign, but did show his true quality in glimpses on loan at Peterborough United in the second half of the season.

Andy Fisher is going to be hard to budge as Russell Martin’s number one at Swansea City, therefore an exit, especially to a Premier League club, would be an exciting option for Benda, giving him a chance to progress his career while receiving an enhanced financial package.

The Swans would need to source a new backup keeper if Benda did leave, but if offloading the German means they have a greater chance of keeping someone like Joel Piroe at the club then it would certainly be mutually beneficial.

Swansea were devastating in glimpses in 2021/22, and with a full pre-season under their belt now under Martin, their potential to ruffle some feathers at the top of the division has increased significantly.
