'They're daunting places to play, in front of some horrible fans' - Ben Wilmot

Swansea City have signed Watford defender Ben Wilmot on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old centre-back becomes manager Steve Cooper's second summer recruit to the Liberty Stadium.

Wilmot began his career at Stevenage, earning a call-up for England Under-19s after impressing in League Two.

Premier League Watford paid £1.5m for him in May 2018, while Wilmot went on loan to Italian club Udinese from January to May last season.
