SAM Surridge says he is "getting used to" his new role at loan club Swansea City.

The Cherries striker, 21, netted the dramatic late winner for the Swans at Wigan Athletic on Saturday, his fifth goal for the south Wales club.

But he revealed how he has been working on developing his game in a different position.

"I've been playing out on the wing in training," Surridge told the Swansea club website.

"I'm getting used to the role. I just want to be versatile and wherever the gaffer puts me, I'll do my best.

"It helps with the way we play because I can run in behind or hold the ball up in deeper positions.

"You get more space out wide as well."

"It shows another side to my game which I will look to show in the next few weeks, whenever I'm playing out there.

"Obviously, my main position is as a striker, but when I'm asked to play out there, I'll do as good a job as I can."

"I just want to be doing the best I can for Swansea. If I'm scoring, then we're going to get results.

"Hopefully I can get a good run of games soon and the goals follow."

Looking ahead to Saturday's trip to Sheffield Wednesday, England under-21 international Surridge added: "We’re unbeaten away from home so we’re confident of going to places like there and getting something.

“It wasn’t necessarily our best performance of the season (at Wigan), but we stuck at it.

“We knew they were in good form at home so it’s great to know we can go to places like that and win.”
