Man in the Middle: Mike Dean

20th February 2018

Mike Dean will take charge of Swansea City’s Premier League fixture against Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

Dean, from the Wirral, will be the man in the middle for a Swans game for the fourth time this season.

The 49-year-old's most recent Swans assignment was the 1-0 victory over West Brom in December.

He also took charge of the return fixture against Brighton, which ended in a 1-0 win for the Seagulls, as well as the goalless draw at Spurs back in September.

Dean was also in charge of the Swans’ 2-1 win over West Brom at the Liberty on the final day of last season.

Dean is a vastly experienced Premier League official who has also refereed in European club competitions and at international level.

He will be assisted on Saturday by Simon Long and Eddie Smart, while Chris Kavanagh is the fourth official.
