'I want to start as many games as I can'
Nathan Dyer has admitted he is targeting more starts for the Swans ahead of this weekend's showdown with Bournemouth at the Liberty.
After seven months out with a ruptured Achilles tendon, Dyer made his long-awaited return to first-team action as a substitute in the win over Huddersfield Town last month.
He made his first start of the season against Brighton in the Swans’ most recent home game at the Liberty, and made the XI once more at Burnley last weekend.
Back to full fitness and just a few days short of his 30th birthday, Dyer is eager to nail down a place in Paul Clement’s starting side.
“There has been a big chunk of my career over the past 18 months to two years when I’ve been in and out of the team through injury,” he tells this weekend’s Jack Magazine.
“So, I want to start as many games as I can and continue to keep myself fighting fit and healthy.
“Just playing football has been my dream since I was little, so hopefully I can clock up more game-time and increase those numbers.”
