Deadline-day signings all in contention for south Wales derby

All of Swansea City’s deadline-day signings are in contention for this weekend’s south Wales derby against Cardiff City.

Jamal Lowe, Bashir Humphreys, Josh Tymon and Kristian Pedersen all joined the Swans during the final hours of the transfer window.

Lowe, Tymon and Pedersen got straight down to work with their new teammates, while Humphreys has been on international duty with England under-21s.

And head coach Michael Duff has confirmed they are all in the mix for Saturday night’s game at the Cardiff City Stadium, although Kyle Naughton is an injury doubt.

Azeem Abdulai will miss out with his hamstring injury.

“We’ve had a really good couple of weeks, got some really good work in and having new players in has given everyone a lift,” said the Swans boss.

“We have had this period to work with them and go through what we expect from them and the intensity they need to show every day, so it comes out on a Saturday.

“We pretty much have a clean bill of health, Naughton might be 50-50 but other than that it will be the same squad with the four added in from deadline day.”
