Swansea boss Graham Potter believes his side are beginning to see the best of former Ipswich loanee Bersant Celina.

The Kosovan, who spent last season at Portman Road on loan from Manchester City, had been a regular for the Swans prior to suffering an ankle injury but is now back in the side.

He’s yet to open his account in a white shirt, but Potter has been pleased with his contribution.

“Bersant is an important player for us,” said the Swans manager.

“We are happy with him and how he has settled in.

“I think there’s more to come from him – I am sure he would say the same – but he is influencing the game more and more for us.

“He is still young but I think people can see his qualities and his attributes.

“He has a great desire to play football and it is nice to work with someone like that.”
