A number of Swansea City fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Yorkshire Evening Post this week suggesting that Leeds United are monitoring Ben Cabango.
The Whites are looking to strengthen their backline ahead of their return to the Premier League. The club have already added Robin Koch to their ranks, but the Germany international may not be the last addition.
According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, they are interested in Josko Gvardiol. But the report also suggests that Cabango is one of the names also on their radar.
Cabango established himself as one to look out for for the Swans last season. The 20-year-old went into the campaign having not made his debut for the club.
But he went on to make 23 Championship appearances for Steve Cooper’s side. And he proved to be extremely impressive as the Swans reached the play-off semi-final.
As noted by BBC Sport, he only signed a new contract at the Liberty Stadium in March. And it would appear that many of the supporters have the same high hopes for the defender as the club do.
Several have taken to social media to insist that he cannot be sold to Leeds this summer. Swansea’s season begins in a matter of days and they cannot see any upside to losing Cabango at this stage.
Cabango was impressive against Leeds towards the end of last season. But the Whites fans would be forgiven for not knowing too much about him given his lack of experience.
However, they can certainly take some encouragement from how some of the Swansea fans have reacted to the links should the newly-promoted side decide to make a move.
Here is how some of the fans reacted to the reports…
I swear if we start selling players literally 3 days before our first competitive game and 10 before our first league game I’ll fume with the board. Won’t surprise me if Cooper walks aswell https://t.co/jeGQfIYuRk

If Cabango goes then we’ve literally just given up all in the space of 48 hours, you’ll do well to get season ticket renewals lads 😩 https://t.co/vsKunsul2p

Now Leeds can actually do one 😂 looks like he’s merely a name on a list to them, this move would not have any benefit to any parties involved either https://t.co/pjJBdszgti

Genuinely just wouldn’t be worth us selling him now. His value is only going to rise. Still has 3 years to run on his deal that he recently signed. That’s a non-starter for Leeds as far as I’m concerned. https://t.co/S9LEjyl6z7
