Swans report back for pre-season training

3rd July 2017

Preparations for the 2017-18 campaign kicked off today as the Swans squad returned for pre-season training.

Paul Clement’s squad underwent a series of testing at the first team’s training base in Fairwood.

The Swans’ pre-season schedule includes a ten-day tour of America, which includes three friendly matches, along with further fixtures against Barnet, Birmingham City and Italian outfit Sampdoria.

Dutch goalkeeper Erwin Mulder met up with his new team-mates while Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes and Modou Barrow returned from their loan spells at Leeds United.

Meanwhile, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lukasz Fabianski, Martin Olsson and Kristoffer Nordfeldt will link up with the squad on Friday as they have been given extra time off due to their involvement at international level.

Alfie Mawson, who helped England Under-21s reach the semi-final of the European Championship, will be back in the fold ahead of the tour in America while Ki Sung-Yueng remains in South Korea as he overcomes a knee injury.
