The 23-year-old goalkeeper returned to Championship side Swansea on a second loan deal in the recent transfer window after he helped them reach the playoffs last term.


Although the Swans reached the Championship playoff semi-finals, the Newcastle loanee feels he could have contributed a lot more in what was his first spell in the second tier.



With his eyes set on learning from last year’s experiences and improving as a player further, Woodman was desperate to return to the Liberty Stadium for a second spell.


Reflecting on his decision to return to Wales, the Newcastle star revealed that being able to work with Swans boss Cooper and goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson influenced him to do so.



Last year was my first season in the Championship and looking back I felt I could give a lot more“, Woodman was quoted as saying by WalesOnline.


I learned so much from last season and hopefully I’m bringing it into this season.



Working with Steve Cooper has been massive.


All I wanted to do in the summer, was to get the deal done and come back here.


One of the big reasons for that was to be able to work with the manager again and with the goalkeeping coach, Marg.


They are two people who just want to make you better – as a footballer and as a person.


That was one of the big reasons why I wanted to come back here. I’m glad I’m back and I’m glad we’re off to a good start.


Woodman has so far kept five clean sheets in eight Championship games for Swansea, who currently sit second in the table.
