Mitchell made his debut for Arsenal Under 18s in 2018 when he was still an Under 15 player.

Remarkably, he also featured on the bench for the Gunners’ under 23s side while still a schoolboy.

Swansea meandered through a difficult 2021-22 season, finishing 15th in the Championship, 14 points off the play-offs.

Andy Fisher, 24, has been Russell Martin’s stopper of choice since his arrival in January.

Before his arrival from MK Dons, Ben Hamer and Josh Gould had shared goalkeeping duties.

The Swans lost in last season’s play-off final against Brentford.

They then lost Newcastle loanee Freddie Woodman, who had been the club’s first-choice stopper for the previous two seasons.
