Maliq Cadogan has joined Swansea City's academy, subject to international clearance.

Midfielder Cadogan, who was a free agent, has signed a two-year deal through to June 2025 and will link up with Anthony Wright's under-21 squad.

The 18-year-old had been at Crystal Palace from under-14 level, and has since made appearances in the EFL Trophy and the Premier League Cup.

He was part of the Eagles' under-15 EFL Floodlit Cup winning side in 2019, as well as the under-18s' Premier League South title winning campaign during the 2020-21 season.

A versatile and creative attacker, Cadogan is capable of operating on both wings as well as in central midfield.

“Maliq is a player we have been aware of over the past few seasons at Crystal Palace. We felt that if available we could provide Maliq a platform to elevate himself," said head of academy recruitment Jack Chapman.

"He’s quick and aggressive when one v one against defenders, and has dangerous delivery off both feet.

"The 'Swansea Way' is about dominating the ball and territory where we can find and isolate attacking situations. As we’ve seen with the under-21 group last season, we have pace and goalscoring threat and Maliq will add to that.

"When we first met Maliq, he came across as a humble, focused and ambitious young man who was craving this type of opportunity. I hope he enjoys his time at the club and living in Swansea, and also showcases his talent as he seeks to eventually push towards our first team.”
