Swans are starting to look the winners from £2m Stoke Agreement

The 24-year-old had a rocky start to life at Swansea City, but he has now blossomed into a key member of Luke Williams’ squad and contributed significantly to the Swans’ recent upswing in results.

Swansea’s season hasn’t gone well, and Michael Duff—who signed Tymon—was fired in December. Nevertheless, under Luke Williams, the left-back has truly emerged.
For a meager £2 million on the final day of the 2023 summer transfer window, the 24-year-old was acquired from Championship rivals Stoke City, and he has already shown to be a great addition.

The Swans appear to have a real star in the making, especially considering his age and recent performances, and Stoke must be kicking themselves for letting the defender go given their poor play this year.

Josh Tymon didn’t have much time to come up to speed after joining the team on deadline day; he made his debut against Cardiff City just two weeks later. It was a scary match to make your debut in because of the enmity between the two teams.

The defender didn’t have the best of starts as Ollie Tanner of Cardiff easily beat him for the Bluebirds’ goal. However, as time went on, it became evident that things could only get better.

Tymon returned to the starting lineup in October after spending a few weeks as a bench player, and he has been there almost every day since.

Tymon has made 39 appearances for Swansea City this season and has contributed six goals, one of which came in the team’s 4-0 victory over Huddersfield Town on Saturday, which effectively guaranteed them a spot in the Championship for the following year.

With a brilliant touch to control Carl Rushworth’s pass and take the ball in stride before selflessly setting the ball on a plate for Ronald to tap into the net, the 24-year-old earned praise for his contribution to the goal.

It demonstrated why Tymon has grown so well-liked by the Jack Army lately, and he’s been a rare bright light from an unimpressive summer transfer season in which several summer recruits failed to make an impression in south Wales.

Swansea has some security over the player’s future because he has a contract at the Swansea.com Stadium through 2026, but if he keeps up his good play, a transfer could be interested in signing him soon.

Given his impressive form for Swansea City in recent times, the £2million paid for Josh Tymon is starting to look like a bargain, and Stoke City supporters must be scratching their heads as to why he wasn’t playing more often.

It’s been a miserable campaign for the Potters, and left-back Enda Stevens has struggled with injury, so Stoke may well have regretted their decision to sell Tymon to a direct Championship rival.

It seems odd to sell a 24-year-old with so much growth and development potential, especially considering that the Potters’ first-choice left-back, Enda Stevens, is 33 years old.

Swansea has undoubtedly gained by Stoke’s setback, as Tymon ranks among the top 10% of Championship players in a variety of metrics.

In terms of assists (6), successful passes (1,423), opportunities created (59), and successful crosses (51), Tymon ranks among the best left-backs, according to Fotmob.

This demonstrates that Tymon has been a valuable addition to Swansea’s roster, and even though Stoke paid £2 million for the player, it seems like a bad decision to let him go last summer.

Everyone at Swansea.com Stadium is hopeful that the left-back’s recent success at the stadium continues for a very long time.
