Swansea City Forward Goes Out on Loan Once Again

A Bit About the Swansea City Forward

Swansea City forward Morgan Whittaker has left the Liberty Stadium on loan before this campaign. He was snapped up by the Welsh side in 2021 from Derby County. He impressed with the Rams in the face of issues that have now evidently come to a head. Whittaker then began playing for Swansea up until the January of this year, when he was loaned out to Lincoln City.

This is the same Lincoln City who got into the playoffs the year prior with Morgan Rogers and Brennan Johnson amongst their ranks. The former is a highly rated Manchester City youngster whilst Johnson fired Nottingham Forest into the Premier League in the season just gone.

Back to the Swansea man and he put on a good display in his 20 appearances for the Imps. He found the back of the net five times as well as contributing one assist under Michael Appleton and then Mark Kennedy. It was quite a poor season in which they finished 17th in League One but Whittaker still performed very well.

Where Whittaker Will Fit In at Home Park

The Swansea City forward is the fifth signing for Schumacher in this window. It began with Mickel Miller and Matt Butcher, who both arrived on free transfers. Since then, things have picked up as the start of the season beckons: Finn Azaz and Bali Mumba joining on loan from Aston Villa and Norwich City respectively.

Due mainly to the system with which they operate, Argyle don’t really have any senior wingers beyond Miller and Whittaker. The pair can also play centrally which is needed if the Pilgrims stick to their usual 5-3-2 formation.

At just 21, Whittaker is still very young and is one for the future. The Swansea forward could be part of a Premier League team in a couple of years and he can prove his worth down south this season.
