Garry Monk tweets picture of Swansea squad reuniting for training

Swansea Liberty Stadium

Swansea City players returned for pre-season training this week ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

As the Premier League's youngest manager, it is no surprise to see Swansea City boss Garry Monk demonstrating his social media skills, and so the 36-year-old proved, as he posted a picture of his players reconvening for pre-season training on Tuesday morning.

There are no phone bans at the Swansea training ground by the looks of things, as Monk seemed to take the picture just before or just after what looks like a fairly important squad meeting.

Fans will be delighted to hear from Monk that the players are in good fitness ahead of the pre-season.

Their former defensive star took the Swans to their highest ever points total last season, his first full campaign as manager, with the South Wales side also achieving their highest ever Premier League finish of 8th place.

It is no surprise then that Swans supporters, and almost certainly Monk and his players, will be looking forward to returning to the pitch to prepare for the coming campaign.

The club have already completed the high profile signing of Andre Ayew from Marseille on a free transfer, as well as Sweden goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and French fullback Franck Tabanou, while there are reports that Portgual striker Eder are set to join from Braga in the coming days according to BBC Sport.

If Monk continues to bring in players, it looks like he may have to pick a bigger room.
