Swansea City Under-21s Adam King
11th February 2016
Adam King revealed his recent five-month loan spell at League One side Crewe Alexandra has helped the midfielder develop his game with the Swans.
Swans Under-21s came from behind to beat West Ham at Rush Green on Wednesday evening with the midfielder netting the winner.
And King - who scored five goals during his 26 appearances with the Railwaymen - believes his time at Gresty Road has helped him grow as a player.
"My five months on loan at Crewe was a brilliant experience," he said. "I learned a lot and I feel I have brought what I have learned in the Football League back into my game here with the Under-21s.
"League One is a different kind of football - it is much more physical and demanding.
"My time there has definitely helped me add more to my game as a player, and now I want to show that with Swans Under-21s for the rest of the season."
In only his third start for the Under-21s this season, 20-year-old King netted the winner after 74 minutes against the Hammers.
The Scottish Under-21s midfielder - who signed for the Swans from Scottish Premiership side Hearts in January 2014 - could have had a second goal five minutes from time but his chance cannoned back off the post.
"We did not get off to the best of starts against West Ham, but we took control of the game and played really well in the second half to earn a good win," added King.
"Goals are something I want to add to my game, so to score against West Ham is ideal for me.
