Bashir Humphreys

Bashir Humphreys has joined Swansea City on loan for the 2023-24 season.

The 20-year-old joined from parent club Chelsea and wears the number 33 shirt for the Swans.

Humphreys moved to the Stadium on the back of a pre-season where he had been heavily utilised by new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino, featuring in five friendlies in the United States for the Blues.

He started Chelsea’s Carabao Cup win over AFC Wimbledon, and was an unused substitute in their Premier League fixtures against West Ham and Luton Town.

An England age-grade international, Humphreys joined Chelsea at under-15 level, having previously had a spell in the youth ranks at Reading.

Progressing through the age categories at Stamford Bridge, Humphreys signed his first professional contract in 2021, and made his senior debut for the Blues in an FA Cup tie against Manchester City in January 2023.

Following that appearance he joined German second-tier club SC Paderborn on loan, and impressed during his dozen league appearances.

Humphreys was part of the England Under-20s’ squad at the World Cup this summer, scoring against Uruguay in the group stage before the Three Lions knockout stage exit to Italy.

He was previously a member of the under-19 squad that won the 2022 European Championship.
