Players are coming in and quickly at Swansea City

Russell Martin has already indicated that he is in discussions with certain players to come in to the club, hopefully before Saturdays game away at Blackburn Rovers. Coming in to a depleted and very young club Martin and his three man team have already started their search.
Along with assistant Luke Williams, goalkeeping coach Dean Thornton, and Technical and Strategic Development Coach Matt Gill all have come in to Swansea as well as a part of the new structure. This leaves England goalkeeping coach Martin Margetson and Mike Marsh pretty much frozen out of proceedings starting today, the week the season opening games begin. The club have not mentioned anything officially but we have learned a statement from the Liberty is pending on both Margetson and Marsh. As we all know Alan Tate remains at Swansea City, he has already spoken fondly about Russell Martin and his football values.
Luke Williams leaving Stadium MK is a great loss to the club
It’s refreshing to know that Martin is up and ready to do business and has numerous targets, he is hopeful some will arrive this week. “ Yes we really hope to get players in, work has already started on that ( we assume Andy Scott is also involved, but as yet his position isn’t clear ) At one point we know he was a candidate to take over from Steve Cooper with a focus on ‘ stepping up’ his personal involvement on the training ground. How he fits in to the mix is something the club will clarify this week as well. When that news came to us Martin and co were not under consideration at the Liberty so Scott is maybe something yet to be announced ?

Nothing is known on who it is we should see in the coming days, James Garner has been a topic of conversation as a loan player this summer, he is yet to leave Old Trafford. Of course the swans have several targets that have been put on ice since Steve Cooper left the club, obviously awaiting the new management teams announcement. Now, wether they are to yet again become of interest is anyone’s guess, much of that will depend on Martin’s plans to bring in the players he wants at the Liberty. Which again maybe leaves the position of Scott in limbo, something the club needs to clarify as well. It’s been a big restructure and once again Julian Winter has come through with the goods, it took time but some of the flak he has taken in recent weeks has been laughable. Credit where it is due.
All we need now is full clarity on the staff departing, and who they are as we travel positively in to the next Swansea City chapter.
Who would you like to see at the swans ?
