Bashir Humphreys has revealed what made him determined to seal a move to Swansea City from CHELSEA this summer.
The centre-back, captain of the development squad in the first half of last season, excelled on the clubs summer pre-season tour of America, appearing in all five of the clubs matches stateside.
He has also featured at the beginning of the season for us – but despite agreeing a deal that will keep him at the club until 2027 – the decision was made to let him make the loan move to Swansea City.
Humphreys was impressed by the conversations he had with Duff and also Swansea’s pedigree as a club that gives opportunities to, develops and improves young players. And he is eager to hit the ground running having been made to feel he was really wanted.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID –
“I am delighted to finally be here, it has been on the cards for a while and I am glad it is finally done,” said Humphreys.
“This is a great club with a great history, I remember growing up watching them play in the Premier League, and seeing how great the fans are and how they follow the team everywhere.
“You see some of the players who have played here, so it is just the whole package really.
“I spoke to Michael Duff and it was that conversation that swayed me to come, as it goes.
“He is quite straight-talking and I liked his tactics. He has shown how good he is at developing young players in my position, and he has had success with other teams. It is really good for me.
“As a player you always want to go somewhere you feel wanted, it is really important and the guys here told me where they wanted me to play and it suits me and is a perfect fit.
“I am fully focused on Swansea and having the best possible season here.”
