The transfer window that has now closed, was by no means the worst in the recent history of Swansea City, but then again the bar has been set so low since the change of ownership in 2016 that it really isn’t a compliment either.
The Jack Army has approached deadline day with a certain amount of trepidation in recent years. August 2018 is etched long in the memory after we gave away Federico Fernandez, Jordi Amat, Sam Clucas and Jordan Ayew in the hours of the transfer window and only one new player arrived.
There can be no doubt that Swansea City are stronger now than they were 24 hours before the transfer window closed. With the arrival of Renato Sanches, one of the brightest prospects in world football and the return of goal scoring hero Wilfried Bony the Jack Army are more confident of a successful campaign than at the start of the season.
