Cabango returns to Swans following New Saints loan spell

Defender Ben Cabango has returned to Swansea City following his loan spell with reigning Welsh Premier League champions The New Saints.

It is unsure whether Cabango will return to The New Saints with Scott Ruscoe stating he wanted to see the loan extended in August.

The 18-year-old arrived at Park Hall in the summer, making his debut in the Champions League First Qualifying Round game against Macedonian side Shkëndija.

Cabango scored TNS’ third goal in the return leg, as the Oswestry side won 4-0 on the night, but went down 5-4 on aggregate in a European tie for the ages.

The former Newport County youth player made 31 appearances for Swansea City under-18s, before making his debut for the under-23s in March of 2018

He featured in the home and away legs of the Europa League Second Qualifying Round tie against Gibraltan Premier Division side Lincoln Red Imps.

The left-back also featured in both legs of TNS’ Third Qualifying Round tie against Danish side FC Midtjylland, which they lost 5-1 on aggregate.

Cabango was an ever-present in the Welsh Premier League during his loan spell, playing in 17 of The Saints’ 20 league games.

He leaves Scott Ruscoe’s side third in the table, two points behind leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads, as they look to retain their title for the seventh consecutive season.

The New Saints were victorious on Friday evening, beating Newtown 4-0 at Park Hall.
