Swansea City were quite successful in shopping for new players last season, with Kyle Naughton being another shining example.

Purchased from Tottenham in the January window, Naughton immediately established himself as first choice right back, wrangling the job away from veteran Angel Rangel, and was part of a great run of team defense before an ankle injury saw him miss all but the final game of the season. He projects to keep his place entering next year and with a generally sound defensive philosophy, he should be an excellent fantasy pick in plus matchups.

Kyle Naughton returned from injury in time to start the final game of the season for Swansea City, but the result was not as hoped as they fell to Crystal Palace, 1-0.

While Naughton's return was a pleasant surprise, Swansea were hampered by the absence of three key players in their midfield: Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jonj Shelvey and Ki Sung-Yueng, all instrumental in one game or another throughout the season, did not make the squad. Hence, while they did well to play an even possession battle with Palace, their chances in the final third lacked that creativity or extra pass that could provide a better shot at beating the Eagles keeper. Though the Swans drop their final two games, the first season under former player/now manager Garry Monk has to be viewed as a solid one.

The South Wales Evening Post is reporting that Swansea defender Kyle Naughton's season is over as a result of his ankle injury.

Naughton swiped the right back job from Angel Rangel immediately upon his arrival and along with Jack Cork has impressed immensely for the Swans since both were signed in the January window. Now without him, Garry Monk will likely turn back to Rangel to finish out the season. Rangel becomes the cheapest route to the Swans defense for fantasy purposes now and with their list of fixtures to come, he should be considered as a premium budget option. That said, Ashley Williams is only 1.5m more currently in the Yahoo game and is a better value.

As Swansea close in on their record Premier League points tally Saturdays’ win over Hull City was marred by the loss of full-back Kyle Naughton who was taken to hospital post-match for further tests on an ankle injury.

The former Tottenham defender was challenged by David Meyler early in the second half, a tackle which was deemed dangerous by referee Andre Marriner resulting in the Hull City midfielder receiving his marching orders and subsequent 3-match ban. Kyle Naughton will now face a worrying few days until the extent of the injury is known, however the swelling suggests tissue damage which is likely to mean at least a few weeks on sidelines. Swansea move onto [46] points just one behind their previous best with 7 games still remaining; a remarkable achievement considering the club cashed in on their biggest asset and leading scorer Wilfried Bony during the January transfer window.

Kyle Naughton has taken the right back role and ran with it since his arrival to Swansea City, rendering veteran Angel Rangel nothing more than bench depth these days.

There was little buzz about the acquisition of Naughton over the winter window, but as we look at the impact some of the January signings have had with their new clubs, it would be hard to argue that Naughton hasn't been a rousing success. Swansea, despite their loss to Spurs last time out, have shown themselves well over a period of time when some of their better known players had moved on (Bony) or were injured (Sigurdsson). Rangel may get a crack at starting again before the season ends, if only to boost his value on the transfer market, but Garry Monk appears satisfied with sticking with Naughton.

Kyle Naughton got his first start as a member of Swansea City last weekend and came up big helping the Swans collect a clean sheet and 14 fantasy points for himself.

No one gave the Swans much of a shot to come away with a positive result against Southampton last weekend, but while Jonjo Shelvey earned the headlines with his game-winning goal, Naughton was an unsung hero, starting at right back over veteran Angel Rangel. Naughton is versatile enough to handle either fullback position and can provide the perfect bench replacement for normal starters Neil Taylor and Rangel, but after last weekend's performance, it may prove difficult for Garry Monk to come up with a valid reason to sit Naughton down. It is a good problem to have in terms of depth but it creates a potential problem for fantasy managers. Ashley Williams and Lukasz Fabianski are the trusted option in the back for the Swans.

Swansea City have strengthened their defensive options with the signing of Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Naughton.

The 26-year-old, who completed his medical today (Thursday), has penned a three-and-a-half year deal at the Liberty Stadium for an undisclosed fee. Naughton, a former England Under-21 international, made 74 appearances for Spurs – 42 in the Barclays Premier League – during his five-and-a-half year spell at the London club. Predominantly a right-back, Naughton, who will wear squad number 26, will also provide cover on the opposite flank to bolster manager Garry Monk’s defensive options. He will now be available for Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Championship side Blackburn Rovers. His arrival means he becomes the third signing of the January transfer window, following Benfica loanee Nelson Oliveira and midfielder Matt Grimes to the Liberty.

Tottenham have accepted a £5 million bid from Swansea for defender Kyle Naughton.

The right back is currently discussing personal terms with the Welsh club. Naughton, 26, has struggled to establish himself in Spurs' first-team since arriving from Sheffield United in 2009 and has been the subject of interest from a number of Premier League clubs in the current window.

Kyle Naughton was sent off within 30 minutes of Tottenham's match against West Ham.

Naughton was sent off for handling the ball inside the area, giving away a penalty. The defender's arms were raised so the penalty decision was fair, but the red card was harsh and there is a chance Tottenham will appeal. Spurs went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to a late goal by Eric Dier.

Swansea boss Garry Monk has confirmed his interest in Tottenham's Kyle Naughton.

Just to keep the Swansea and Tottenham merry-go-round swinging, we have the possibility of Naughton moving to the Liberty Stadium. With Ben Davies and Danny Rose available at left-back, and with new signing Eric Dier capable of covering for Kyle Walker at right-back, the time may be right for Naughton to consider moving on, with Tottenham unlikely to stand in his way.

Tottenham defender Kyle Naughton has admitted that he may have to quit the club if he does not establish himself as a regular in the starting XI.

Naughton has switched between covering for Kyle Walker at right-back and Danny Rose at left-back, but has never been considered first choice and that is unlikely to change while he remains at Spurs. He will have an important role to play until the end of the season as the injuries start to mount, but a summer move to a side in mid-table seems a likely outcome after these comments.
