Up To 10 Players Could Leave Swansea City

Up To 10 Players Could Leave Swansea City

Paulo Sousa could release up to 10 players from his squad as he looks to cut the numbers down to 24 or 25.

The 28 year-old is also hoping to bring in at least two new signings, and that could mean up to 10 players leaving the Liberty Stadium.

At present, Sousa's squad has 32 players, and 2 signings would make that number rise to 34, meaning he'd need to release 9 or 10 players to cut it down to 24/25.

With those plans in mind, Paulo Sousa has a number of long and hard decisions to make in deciding which members of his team are surplus to requirements.

Sousa told the Evening Post that the squad will be adjusted to a smaller number of players next week:

'I want a squad of 24 or 25 players and at the moment I have more,'

'But we will adjust that in the middle of next week.

'I have made my decisions about these players and in the middle of next week we will start to do things. In my opinion, some of the players are not ready to compete for a position in my team.

'I want a squad of players who are ready to play in the first team — that's the only way to keep the intensity up in training and in games. Some of the players we have need competition to develop and be stronger, others need to leave.

'We need to find a way for that to happen.'

What players should Sousa release to cut the squad numbers down?
