Appointing Steve Cooper as their manager in the summer, Swansea have taken a step forward this season as they attempt to return to the Premier League.

Entering the international break in fourth after a surprising 2-1 loss to Stoke City at home, the Welsh side remain in a good spot to reach their goal come the end of the season.

One man, however, who might not be there when that happens if he gets his wish is Kristoffer Nordfeldt.

The Swedish goalkeeper has yet to play in the Championship, as Cooper seems to prefer Freddie Woodman between the sticks, only turning to the 30-year-old when it comes to the League Cup, which they are now out of after a 2-1 loss to Watford.

Called up to his national team for the break, Nordfeldt gave an interview to Fötbollskanalen on Wednesday where he addressed his situation at the Liberty Stadium.

First asked how he felt about his game time, he answered “How do you think I feel?”, to which the journalist replied that can’t feel great.

Nordfeldt then said: “Then we pretty much agree”.

The player was then asked if a move away was possible.

He replied: “That question isn’t up to me at all, it’s up to Swansea, but I’m not happy and I don’t suppose they think it’s good that I’m sitting where I’m sitting either, if you can put it like that”.

Revealing there was ‘no talks’ to that effect for now, the goalkeeper then continued by saying it was ‘quite obvious’ the Championship side weren’t ‘happy’ to pay him when he’s not contributing, ‘especially considering the situation the club is in financially’.

Nordfeldt admitted there is interest in his services out there, and a return to Sweden certainly isn’t off the cards, as the Allsvenskan is ‘becoming more and more interesting’.

However, he doesn’t care where he goes, adding: “I’m open to most things. I have no preference about where my next club is. It’s more about being at a club that shares the playing philosophy I think suits me”.

A strong message sent to Swansea, suggesting a January move might be best for all.
