Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson's loving life at the Liberty
18th February 2017
Alfie Mawson admits he's loving every minute of his Premier League adventure with Swansea City.
The 23-year-old defender struck his third goal in his last six games during last weekend's 2-0 win over defending champions Leicester City.
Mawson has made 14 top-flight appearances since his summer switch from Championship side Barnsley.
It signals a huge leap in terms of progression for the centre-back, who was playing non-league football under three years ago.
Having adjusted to life in the Premier League with relative ease, he is delighted with the Swans' recent run of results which has put them four points clear of the relegation zone ahead of next weekend's trip to leaders Chelsea.
"I am very proud to play in this league for Swansea," said Mawson, who has also scored in wins over Crystal Palace and Southampton.
"Playing in the Premier League is a dream come true, and this club is a great place to be for me.
"The club is going forward and I want to be a big part of that.
"The fans have taken to me and I have taken to them because they have helped us through a bad patch.
"The new gaffer has come in and made us a more compact team, and the results are coming now.
"We are on a good run and have given ourselves a small lead on the teams below us, but we need to continue the performances and results we've been picking up.
"The players and staff have really produced the goods, and if we carry on like this then the fans will have played a key role in our turnaround."
