Jamal Lowe believes new signing Kyle Joseph will bring “something different” to Swansea City’s attacking play.

Joseph became the club’s first summer signing after he penned a four-year deal at the Liberty, subject to international clearance.

The pair were at Wigan at the same time, with Lowe involved in the first team while Joseph was busy making a name for himself in the club’s academy set up.

While Lowe went on to score 14 goals in his first season in SA1, helping the Swans reach the Championship play-off final, Joseph was promoted into Wigan’s first team and struck five times – including a hat-trick - in 18 League One appearances.

Now the forwards are reunited at the Liberty, and Lowe is confident the Jack Army will enjoy watching Joseph in a Swans shirt.

“I watched Kyle a few times at Wigan because I used to stay around for the under-23s games sometimes,” said Lowe.

“He can handle himself on the pitch. He’s not afraid of getting stuck in. I’m not sure if all under-23s games are like it, but Wigan’s were a bit feisty, and Kyle wasn’t shy in that respect. So he won’t have a problem in terms of physicality in the Championship.

“He’s a player who will give us something different, which is good. On top of that, he’s a centre-forward who scores goals. He did that for Wigan last season, and the under-23s before that, so now it’s about finding his feet in the Championship.

“I’m looking forward to seeing him here. It’s a great place for him to develop, play and help the team.

“He’ll be a good addition to the team.”
