Sam Surridge is happy to offer Swansea City versatility after being utilised in a different role in recent games.

Surridge is a striker by trade, but the 21-year-old has also been used in wide areas in substitute appearances against Cardiff and Wigan.

The on-loan Bournemouth forward showed nice touches against the Bluebirds, and then grabbed the winner as his fine angle run from wide took him past his marker to head a Connor Roberts cross into the net.

While still adapting to the new position, the England Under-21 international is more than happy to make the adjustment and help wherever he is needed.

“I’ve been playing out on the wing in training. I’m getting used to the role,” he said.

“I just want to be versatile and wherever the gaffer puts me, I’ll do my best.

“It helps with the way we play because I can run in behind or hold the ball up in deeper positions. You get more space out wide as well.

“It shows another side to my game which I will look to show in the next few weeks whenever I’m playing out there.

“Obviously, my main positon is as a striker but when I’m asked to play out there, I’ll do as good a job as I can.

“I just want to be doing the best I can for Swansea. If I’m scoring then we’re going to get results.

“Hopefully, I can get a good run of games soon and the goals follow.”
