Swansea City defender subject to PL interest with club confident of deal

Swansea City man Nathan Wood is still subject to interest from Southampton despite two failed bids from the Saints, as per Darren Witcoop.

Swansea City are gearing up for another campaign in the Championship. The Swans had a poor season last time around failing to build any momentum.

Southampton achieved promotion. Russell Martin’s side beat Leeds United in the play-off final last month and are set to return to the Premier League this coming season.

Wood, 22, played 26 games for Swansea City last season. 

The young defender made 40 appearances in the season before and former Swans boss Martin wants to reunite with Wood at St Mary’s.

Southampton have already made two failed approaches for Wood, but Witcoop says the Saints are confident Martin and Wood will reunite this summer.

Who is this?

A Premier League switch

The 22-year-old could be set for top division football for the first time in his career.

The England youth international may take some getting used to the demands, but he has potential and Martin knows him better than most.

Southampton will be hoping to survive and then establish themselves back in the Premier League, and this summer window could make or break their next few seasons because as everyone knows, the first year back is always the toughest. 

Improvement needed for Swans

Swansea City haven’t really been at the races the past couple of seasons.

Since dropping down to the second tier, they’ve not really challenged the top six on a consistent basis.

Luke Williams is the man at the helm now. This is his first pre-season at the club and fans will be hoping the extra time on the training pitch will lead to his ideas being fully implemented next season.

However, with a summer transfer window and pre-season, there’s no excuses so a fast start is crucial for the former Notts County boss.

It will be interesting to see how much Swansea City are demanding for Wood and how much Southampton are willing to offer. Either way, the Swans need reinforcements over this summer.
