Swansea City fans were sad to see the end of Marc Guehi’s loan spell at The Swans, as the 20-year-old returned to parent club Chelsea following the Swans’ play-off final defeat to Brentford on Saturday.
The defender endured his second loan spell at the Welsh side this season after impressing on a short-term loan for the Swans on his first loan spell from January 2020 to the end of last season, so much so that Steve Cooper decided to bring him back to the Liberty Stadium for the full campaign this year.
Guehi was instrumental for Swansea this term, in a year where the Swans finished fourth and narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
The centre-back appeared 45 times for the Swans in all competitions and spoke to the club website on his future with many Swans fans hoping that they’re not seeing the end of Guehi in a Swansea shirt.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here. The fans and everyone at the club has really embraced me and taken me in as if I was family,” he said.
“It’s been an amazing time I’ve spent here; Swansea City will forever be in my heart. I enjoyed every minute on the pitch, especially with the fans. I didn’t get to play in front of them too much, but the times that I did I really enjoyed.
“I don’t know what my future holds but I’ll definitely keep my eyes on how Swansea are doing at all times and support them from afar.
“The fans have been great; everyone’s really taken me under their wing and it’s been amazing.”
Fans have been thanking Guehi on Twitter, with many gutted to see the back of him.
‘Best CB we’ve had in a long time by far’
‘Miss him already’
‘Going right to the very top’
‘What a player!’
“Best CB we’ve had in a long time by far he’s ready for Premier League football I reckon!! Best of luck at Chelsea Guehi”
Guehi’s future is currently unknown but one fan suggested he’s ready for the Premier League. There is no doubt that many Swans fans would love to see him return to south Wales but maybe a loan move to a Premier League club is the next step for the youngster.
