Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski says Jordi Amat can fill the void at centre-half following Ashley Williams’ move to Everton.
Williams left the Swans to link up with Everton following John Stones’ move from Goodison Park to Manchester City.
Swansea are understood to be on the hunt for a replacement for Williams but Fabianski says Amat can cement a starting place in the heart of defence.
Amat partnered Federico Fernandez in the 1-0 win at Burnley on Saturday and Fabianski is confident the Spaniard can become a regular for Swansea this season.
“I remember in my first year here, he was the one that started in the first four games, then he got injured,” he told the South Wales Evening Post. “He has a lot of capabilities, he has a lot of good quality. He is good on the ball, he is strong, he is mobile and he’s quick.
“We knew that the quality was there. Losing Ash, there is always going to be a little spotlight on the ones now playing in his position.
“I think the clean sheet it is a boost of confidence for the centre-backs. I think they have done a really good job against physical opponents. There were a lot of fights in the air.”
