Chelsea defender Marc Guehi has completed a move to Swansea City on a season-long loan – and some of their fans on Twitter have expressed delight at the news.
The Blues confirmed on Wednesday (official website) that the centre-back has rejoined Championship side Swansea on loan, after spending the second half of last season at the Liberty Stadium.
He made a strong impact during his 14 appearances with the Welsh club following his move to them in January and helped them reach the Championship play-offs, where they were beaten by Brentford in the semi-finals.
The 20-year-old has now returned for a second stint in the second-tier with Swansea and should be part of a team eyeing promotion.
Guehi is one of the many talented youngsters that has been produced in the Chelsea academy in recent years and he’s watched several of his former teammates get their opportunity in the first-team at Stamford Bridge under manager Frank Lampard.
The England Under-21 international has had a taste of it with two senior appearances for the Blues, but he’s experiencing his first-team learning away from the club on loan.
He’s a highly-rated defender with pace to help him in defensive situations, but he’s also a powerful individual that is strong in his tackles, composed on the ball and also great in the air.
A selection of Swansea supporters on social media are thrilled to see Guehi rejoin them for the upcoming season, which shows how valued the Chelsea man is.
Here are some Swansea fans reacting to the Guehi loan signing:
Brilliant player post lockdown, honour to have him back at the Liberty, possibly future england centre half.
