Swansea City boss Luke Williams says work on moulding his squad for next season has already begun.

Indeed, there are likely to be countless recruitment meetings over the next few weeks as he looks to strengthen his options ahead of the new campaign.

Decisions over the club's out-of-contract stars have now been reached, but there are still calls on other members of the squad to be made over the next couple of months or so.

Here's where each member of the squad currently stands.

Andy Fisher

Could well become the club's new number one in light of Carl Rushworth's departure. Keep

Nathan Broome

With Lewis Webb released, options are currently looking a little thin between the sticks. Williams may well want to keep for now, although a loan move might be in everyone's interests should another keeper come through the door.

Josh Key

Enjoyed a terrific opening season in the Championship. A potentially key player (pun very much intended) for the Swans. Unless an outrageous offer comes in, they have to keep him.

Kristian Pedersen

A signing that just hasn't worked out. A sale might just be the best solution for everyone.

Ben Cabango

Contract expires next summer, meaning there might well be a temptation to sell should he show any reluctance to commit his future to the Swans. Still, keeping him is surely the preferred option.

Harry Darling

As above.

Josh Tymon

After a slow start, he's proved to be a really good signing. Absolutely keep.

Nathan Tjoe-A-On

Hardly anything to go on in terms of how good he is. Was always described as one for the future, so maybe another loan might just do him some good.

Nathan Wood

Was the subject of interest last summer, and given his contract situation, there are likely to be admirers again this time around. Swans have triggered another 12 months on his deal, but there appears to be little progress in tying him down to a more long-term contract. Given they risk losing him for nothing, a sale might just be on the cards.

Kyle Naughton

Just signed a new one-year deal and still has something to offer at this level. Williams loves him too. Keep.

Filip Lissah

Williams has singled out the youngster for praise on a couple of occasions. Keep for now, but should they strengthen, a loan might well be a good option.

Jay Fulton

A bit of a Marmite character with Swans fans. A steady presence in midfield, who would be a useful squad player at the very least. Keep.

Joe Allen

A valuable presence on and off the field. Hence the contract extension. Keep.

Matt Grimes

Perhaps the most emphatic keep of them all.

Ollie Cooper

Emerged from a patchy run of form to finish last season reasonably strongly. Keep.

Ben Lloyd

Could do with getting some first-team football under his belt. Loan.

Aimar Govea

Has looked pretty impressive in his handful of first-team outings. Keep for now, but should others come in through the door, a loan wouldn't be a bad idea.

Sam Parker

Despite frustrations over negotiations over a new deal, he's looked a really talented young player. However, a loan might well take his development up a notch. Sign up to our Swansea City newsletter here.

Cameron Congreve

Still highly rated despite seeing his first-team breakthrough stutter somewhat. Loan might be a good move.

Azeem Abdulai

Has looked reasonably assured when called upon. Keep.

Jerry Yates

A decent presence in the final third, but just doesn't look like a goalscorer. Williams might feel there's a case for keeping him, but should the right offer come in, a sale might be tempting.

Josh Ginnelly

Has a lot to prove and deserves at least a chance. Keep.

Jamie Paterson

Negotiations over new deal are still rumbling on. Despite his advancing years, he's proved he can still have an impact. If the terms are right, then keeping him is surely a no-brainer.

Mykola Kuharevich

Three managers have had a look. None have seemingly fancied him. A signing that will linger over Paul Watson for some time. Just hasn't worked out, and a sale might be best for everyone.

Liam Cullen

Hankering after an improved deal, but won't get it unless he shows signs of stepping up his game. Williams will hope that will give him the fire to drive on next season. Keep.


Been a breath of fresh air. Unless a big offer comes in, it's keep all day long.

Kyrell Wilson

Perhaps a case for keeping him round given Swansea's struggles for goals. A loan would be a more ideal option, mind.
