Alfie Mawson ready to step up for Swansea

Alfie Mawson says he is ready for the demands of the Premier League after making his first appearance for Swansea City in midweek.

The defender, who joined in a £5million deal from Barnsley in August, got his first taste of action during the Under-21s' Checkatrade Trophy victory over Newport on Tuesday.

He said: “I hope I am a step closer to my first-team debut.

“You never know with a new manager, he might come in with certain players he wants to feature in mind or he might come in with a clean slate.

“Whether I am in or out of the next squad I just want the team to get the results they deserve. As Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said, we don't look like a team with just four points."
