Swansea City striker Kyle Joseph is set to leave the Welsh side on loan this summer, a report from WalesOnline has claimed.
The striker has featured in pre-season but has predominantly turned out for the club’s under-21s of late. He was not included in the matchday squad for the Championship opener at Rotherham United last weekend.
Now the report states that the 20-year-old is closing to sealing a temporary move away, with League One sides Oxford United and Sheffield Wednesday both ‘battling it out’ for his signature.
Joseph joined the Swans last summer from Wigan Athletic and made two Carabao Cup appearances under Russell Martin before joining Cheltenham Town on a season-long loan deal last term.
However, his time with the Robins was cut short and he returned to south Wales midway through the 2021/22 campaign. The young striker still has three years left to run on his contract with the Welsh side, who he made 10 substitute appearances for in the second half of last term.
Both Oxford and Wednesday are still looking to add to their squads this month, with additions up top a position both would like to strengthen.
Joseph’s development has stalled of late and the 20-year-old just needs a season where he plays week in week out under his belt and hopefully a move to either of these sides he gets this opportunity. The end goal for Joseph will be that he hopes he can do enough to impress his manager at Swansea and still get that chance at the Liberty Stadium when he returns from his loan spell.
