United goalkeeper is heading to on loan, according to Chronicle journalist Lee Ryder. 

The local outlet had claimed that both and Arsenal were interested in the 22-year-old, but it is understood that a deal has been reached with the side instead.

The 6’2″ stopper [Transfermarkt] made three appearances for last season, all coming in the FA Cup.

Ryder announced the news via his personal Twitter account.


This is a move that makes sense for all parties involved. It might be flattering to hear that the likes of Arsenal and are interested in signing you, but at the end of the day, for a player in Woodman’s position, he needs minutes. He should get them at Swansea. The 22-year-old is of an age now where he is facing a sink or swim dichotomy. If he doesn’t start impressing soon, then he will surely have to find a new club permanently. In some respects, you have to feel sorry for him. Martin Dubravka has been imperious since signing for the Army last year, making 121 saves in 50 league appearances and keeping 15 clean sheets in a pretty poor  side [Premier League]. But Woodman is at a point in his career where he needs to be pushing the big Slovakian harder for a starting role. A year in the is the ideal opportunity o come back ready to do just that.
