Freddie Woodman has been loaned out for a fifth time away from Newcastle United and it looks like he’s found a great fit at Swansea City.
The 22-year-old has moved to the Liberty Stadium on a season-long loan and has made an excellent start to the new season.
He’s part of a Swansea team that sit second in the league with 10 points from their opening four matches and could be a surprise package for promotion.
His path into the first-team at St James’ Park looks blocked right now, but he’s a bright prospect that needs regular game time and a full season in the Championship will be brilliant for his development.
Swansea recorded a 3-1 away victory over QPR on Wednesday night and Woodman made an excellent save early in the contest.
Woodman has previously had spells with Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and Crawley Town as a youngster, but is now ready to take another step up in his career.
He has represented England up to Under-21 level and he’s viewed as a potential long-term successor to Martin Dubravka at Newcastle.
A full of campaign in the Championship should help Woodman get closer to Premier League level and Magpies boss Steve Bruce should be keeping a close eye on him.
