Monk, who recently put pen to paper on a new deal at the Liberty Stadium, spoke out on how the intense fitness camp will benefit the players and prepare them for the start of the new season.

He said; “This week will help us in that because we have our aims. The short term is pre-season, long-term over the years is looking to develop the squad and make us better by getting more quality.

“It has gone well so far – touch wood we have been injury free which is a massive thing – but here we start to ramp up the intensity on the football side of things.”

The Swans face Borussia Monchengladbach in their first pre-season fixture in Grassau on Wednesday. The game will give Garry Monk a first look at his new signings in match action.
