Joe still pinching himself

28th November 2018
First team

Joe Rodon insists he is determined to keep on thriving at Swansea City following a whirlwind spell which has seen his senior career take off.

The Llangyfelach product, who has been with the Swans since under-9 level, made his first-team debut against Preston North End in August.

He has since become a regular feature in the heart of Graham Potter’s backline, and hopes to feature once more as the Swans face West Brom at the Liberty tonight (7.45pm).

His solid performances resulted in a call-up to the Wales senior squad, before he committed his future to his boyhood club by signing a new contract until 2022.

And Rodon still finds it hard to believe how quickly things have developed for him.

“I could never have imagined any of this,” he tells tonight’s Jack Magazine. “Everything has happened so fast.

“To be in this position is a dream come true and makes me even more determined to go out there and do as well as I can. 

“Sometimes, I do have to pinch myself and realise that all of this is actually happening.”

You can read the full interview with Joe Rodon in this evening’s Jack Magazine.

The defender reflects on his journey through the ranks with the Swans, as well as his first-team debut and his determination to not stand still.

We also hear from manager Graham Potter and skipper Leroy Fer, as well as chairman Huw Jenkins.

Mike van der Hoorn and Daniel James issue rallying cries following Saturday’s defeat by Norwich, while Jay Fulton lifts the lid on the characters in the Swans dressing room in our team-mates feature.
