5. Stephen Kingsley
The young left back has become quite an exciting prospect for Garry Monk after signing from Falkirk in the summer. The Scotsman has racked up some outstanding performances for the under 21’s but hasn’t been given a first team chance yet. Therefore, when League 1 side Yeovil Town offered him a loan deal until the seasons end, he couldn’t resist. In his five appearances for Yeovil, Kingsley has shown that he deserves regular football after some resolute defensive showings at Huish Park.
4. Kenji Gorre
Kenji Gorre signed for the Swans in the summer of 2013 after an unsuccessful Manchester United youth career. The 21 year old has been the star man in Swansea’s under 21’s and has bagged over 15 goals in the development league. The Dutchman has been showcasing some silky skills and his pace is lethal in attack. Therefore, Gorre has been highly tipped for a first team chance and the agile winger deserves a chance despite having to overcome tough competition in Routledge, Dyer and Montero.
3. Rory Donnelley
The Northern Irish striker is currently on loan at Tranmere Rovers and what an
impression he’s making at Prenton Park. He’s netted five goals for the League 1 outfit in 14 appearances and is considered as Rovers’ main striker. The 23 year old was also awarded the League 1 player of the month for January after three goals in his first month, which helped Tranmere escape out of the relegation zone.
2. Matt Grimes
Matt Grimes was Garry Monk’s first January signing when Swansea stumped up £1.75m for the Exeter City midfielder. Having paid a fair amount for such a young talent, no doubt Grimes will become a great Swansea player in a few years time. The 19 year old is currently the main man in midfield for England under 20’s and helped them beat Mexico recently, scoring a penalty aswell. It won’t be long until we see Matt Grimes becoming a big name in Swansea.
1. Jay Fulton
Jay Fulton was Michael Laudrup’s last ever Swansea City signing when the Scotsman put pen to paper on the 2014 January transfer deadline day. The 20 year old signed from Falkirk after becoming a sensation in the Scottish Championship. Garry Monk has already shown his faith in Fulton after giving him four appearances since Laudrup’s departure in February 2014. Recently, Fulton starred in Swansea’s amazing win at Southampton where he was astonishing during that game, keeping the Saints very quiet. The Scottish under 21 hotshot will inevitably become a huge asset to the Swansea City side, providing a great replacement for club legend Leon Britton when he hangs up his boots.
