Manchester United youngster Ethan Laird has made a very promising start to his loan spell at Championship side Swansea City.

Laird spent the second half of last season on loan at MK Dons and followed manager Russel Martin to Swansea ahead of the 2021-22 season.

The right-back quickly established himself as a regular in the side and registered his first Championship assist in their 3-3 draw with Luton Town.

“They [United] feel it’s a really good place for Ethan to keep developing and learning, and so do we,” Martin said recently. “As long as he can keep doing what he’s doing, train hard, and he’s finding some real consistency now which is really nice.

“I think the fans are enjoying him, the boys are definitely enjoying him and that’s what it’s about.”

The 20-year-old produced another brilliant performance during their 1-0 win over Huddersfield at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

We’ve rounded up a number of tweets from Swansea fans that were impressed by his display.
