Adam King Swansea City under-23s
30th January 2017
Adam King is ready to fight for his place at Swansea City Under-23s ahead of tonight's Premier League 2 (Division 2) clash with Fulham at Motspur Park (7pm).
The 21-year-old midfielder returned to the development squad this month following a five-month loan spell at League One side Southend United before Christmas.
Now the young Scot hopes to aid the under-23s' Division 2 title push after helping them to victory against Newcastle in the Premier League Cup earlier this month
"I know I am not going to walk straight back into the team and that I will need to fight for my place," he said. "I am looking forward to the opportunity that comes with being back at the Swans.
"In football you always have something to prove, especially when you have been on loan. I know I am going to have to work for my place again.
"Going on loan was a good experience. I got to play with players who have played at the highest level, like Anton Ferdinand and Marc-Antoine Fortune
"It was a valuable few months. I learned a lot of good things there, but I am happy to be back and aim to use what I have learned with the Swans this season."
King rejoins a Swans side that is 13 points clear at the top of the table ahead of tonight's meeting with second-placed Fulham.
He added: "The boys are flying. It is some achievement to be top of the league. Hopefully we can keep that run going until the end of the season.
"Fulham will be a tough game, but the way the side has dealt with other tough games this season has been exceptional, so we must look to keep that attitude."
