Paulet aiming high

6th September 2018

Simon Paulet is setting the bar high this season after joining Swansea City's under-23s.

The Belgian midfielder signed for the Swans’ development side last month following a successful trial in SA1.

Paulet, who was previously at Club Brugge, has since played three times for the young Swans.

And the 18-year-old is hoping to make a big impression in the final third this season after making the move to Wales. 

“I am very happy and honoured to wear the Swansea City shirt,” he smiled.

“I want to devote myself to doing well here.

“I have made three appearances already and am really enjoying my time at the club.

“I really like the people - the players and staff are great to work with.

“On a personal note, I have set myself the goals of providing 10 assists and scoring between five to 10 goals.”

It has been a tricky start to the new campaign for the under-23s, who are still searching for their maiden victory in Premier League 2.

However, Paulet believes the development side can take positives from their performances so far.

“We have two points from a possible 12 and we need to try to improve,” he said.

“I think we were better than Chelsea and had some very good possession. We also played very well against Everton.

“I think we are progressing well and, hopefully, the win will come soon."
