Hannes Wolf says he is relishing life at Swansea City after registering another assist in the victory over Derby County.

The 22-year-old signed on loan from Borussia Monchengladbach in the January transfer window.

Wolf predominantly played in an attacking midfield role in Germany, but for the Swans Russell Martin has utilised him at wing-back, and he has produced a string of strong performances.

Over the last three games the Austrian has one goal and two assists under his belt, netting his first Swans goal and setting up another at Cardiff, before expertly teeing up Joel Piroe for the opener in the 2-1 win over the Rams.

And, having had to overcome recent injury issues, Wolf can feel his sharpness returning and believes he is showing the Jack Army what he is capable of.

“I am really enjoying it. We are playing such good football. The team and the coach are amazing. Everything fits together well,” he said.

“Most of the time I was like a striker (at Borussia Monchengladbach) because I was always so high with the ball and here, we have a lot of the ball and that means there are a lot of opportunities to be involved.

“I just want to score more and get more assists.”

Victory over Wayne Rooney’s relegation-threatened Rams gave the Swans a third win in a week, with the three points coming on the back of a quick start that ultimately proved the difference thanks to Piroe’s brace.

“We played well. We started very well in the first 20 minutes, but after that Derby got a little bit better. We defended well and we deserved to win,” added Wolf.

“It is an amazing week for us. It is incredible and I hope we can win our next games.

“I think playing against a team fighting in a relegation battle is hard. We saw that they really wanted to take a point, but every game is difficult.

“At home it is difficult to play against us but, like I said, I think we were the better team, and we deserved the win.”
