Wolves starlet Luke Cundle hoping to score more goals out on loan for Swansea

Wolves midfielder Luke Cundle has his sights set on scoring more goals for loan club Swansea City.

The 20-year-old is spending the season at the Liberty Stadium with the Championship outfit, and has so far enjoyed a pretty good season.

He’s been getting a decent amount of football, making 12 appearances up to now.

That said, he’s only completed 90 minutes on one occasion, so he’ll be looking to improve on that.

But Cundle has been making an impression in Swansea’s ball-playing system. And the fans are definitely taken by him and the way he plays.

But Cundle has his eye on becoming a bit more of a goalscorer now that he’s got a decent amount of minutes under his belt.

He told The Athletic: “I was speaking to the manager a couple of days ago and we both feel the same about my game. Football nowadays is about goals and how many chances you create and I think that side of my game needs to improve.

“I’m capable but I need to produce the numbers.”

So far, Cundle has found the back of the net just once for the Swans.

That was against Hull City on his first start for the club, when he capitalised on some truly awful defending.

Cundle used to get on the scoresheet fairly regularly for the Wolves U21s. His game revolved around making things happen in the final third as an advanced midfielder.

So Cundle wants to become more of a goalscorer, and that’s great to hear.

The youngster has shown at youth level he has the capacity to be a goalscoring midfielder.

He can be quite elusive, and pop up in the box late to finish off chances, a bit like how Frank Lampard used to operate.

The most important thing right now though from a Wolves perspective is that Cundle continues to play football.

He made his Premier League debut last season so there are definitely high hopes for him.

Hopefully he stays in that Swansea team, and Wolves officials can report back some good things to Julen Lopetegui.
