Mawson: I'm More Than Happy At Swansea City

Mawson: I'm More Than Happy At Swansea City
Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson says he's 'more than happy' at the club as he addresses speculation linking him with Spurs.

While Gylfi Sigurdsson has decided not to join his Swansea team-mates for their trip to the US for their Summer tour ahead of an expected big-money move to Everton this week, Mawson insists he's 'level-headed' as he looks forward to his first full Premier League season with the Swans.

He told BBC Sport:

'I'm very grounded and very level-headed when it comes to that,'

'It's all speculation. It's nice to hear, but I'm a Swansea player and I'm more than happy here.'

'I love it here. I want to kick on and do great things at this club,'

'There's always talk and there's loads of speculation, but I'm happy to be here under the gaffer.

'So it's onwards and upwards at this club.'

Alfie Mawson will be joined by fellow England under-21s team-mate and Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who has joined the club on a season-long loan. The pair enjoyed a good European championship campaign earlier this Summer, helping them reach the semi-final where they were knocked out on penalties by eventual winners Germany. Both players scored during the competition.

Commenting on the striker, Mawson added:

'He's a class player. He's got this thing about him that people see from the outside that he's going to be a target man,'

'But that's not really his game. He's got that in him, but he's very technical and very tactical.

'He knows what he's doing. He's a young lad, 19, but he knows his way about the pitch.

'He's got a lot of nous about him. He knows the little tricks to annoy centre-halves and defenders and he's just got a lovely habit for nicking a goal.

'People can think he's not doing too much in a game and then bang, he'll go and score and it doesn't matter then because at the end of the day strikers are paid to score.

'He'll be a vibrant soul in the changing room, especially, and I think the fans are really going to take to him and he's going to work hard for us.'

It's good to see Alfie Mawson continue to be grounded and level-headed as he says. He's been tipped to be captain at the Liberty Stadium in the near future, and will be aiming to impress further to earn himself a full England call-up. While an early move to Spurs would hinder that desire, given that he'd have to settle for a regular place on the bench where he can join former Swans Ben Davies and Michel Vorm.
