Who will leave as Swansea slim down for the Championship?

Monday 28th May 2018

The inevitable has happened. Swansea City are relegated from the Premier League after seven years in the top flight. When Carlos Carvalhal took command at the Liberty, the Welsh side seemed to be safe. But four consecutive losses derailed the rescue and consigned the Swans to the Championship.

Demotion represents the loss of a significant revenue stream. Relegated clubs generally cannot afford the top class players on their books. The players themselves often want to stay in the Premier League. This season, the likes of Jermain Defoe, Jordan Pickford, Andrew Robertson and Harry Maguire all moved to new clubs to stay up. Several Swans will want to do likewise. But the club will also want to hold the door open for some.
