“I'd like to come in and have the same impact Ashley (Williams) had when he came in here. He was a League Two player but he helped the club rocket up the leagues and played at the Euros in the summer," said Mawson.
“It is not so much football-wise, but being a leader. That's what some could say is missing at this club because Ashley left a big hole in that respect. If I can take on that role I'm happy to do so. They are big shoes to fill, but I'm willing to give it a crack.
“This club is the right fit for me, the way Swansea play football, and I'm just embracing everything here."
