Lukasz Fabianski impressed with Swansea's new American owners

Lukasz Fabianski has praised Swansea's new American owners for their measured approach to running the South Wales club.

Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan finalised their takeover of the Swans in late July and last week sanctioned the record £15.5 million signing of Borja Baston for manager Francesco Guidolin.

Long-serving captain Ashley Williams was sold, along with forward Andre Ayew, but for all the turnover in players, Swans' new foreign owners have so far adopted a hands-off approach.

And Fabianski believes the American duo are assessing the lay of the land, admitting they may prefer to work in the shadows in the long term too.

"There have been a lot of changes at the club, but to be honest it hasn't really affected me personally,'' the Polish goalkeeper said.

"We have new owners at the club, but we haven't seen them change much so far.

"I think a lot depends on whether the owners are people who want to be involved a lot and that has not happened. I think it's good that they are taking time to see how things work here, instead of just jumping straight in and saying, 'This is how it should happen.'

"It's difficult to say if it will be like that in the long term, but from my perspective I think people recognise that Swansea has great traditions and values and it is very important to respect that.''

While the new owners have not been in place a month, ex-Swans skipper Williams had been on the club's book for eight years before being sold to Everton last week.

His old team coped just fine in his absence by beating Burnley 1-0 on Saturday and Fabianski was pleased to see them record a clean sheet as they begin to adjust to life without Williams.

"He has been massive for us a leader and a teacher and he is a big personality,'' Fabianski added.

"He is a big loss, but we wish him well because he has been great for us. Getting used to him not being here was one of the most difficult parts of the preeason and we're very happy how we responded here.''

It could have been a different story at Turf Moor had referee Jon Moss spotted Leroy Fer's shirt pull on Michael Keane which appeared to prevent the Burnley defender from heading home a cross at close range.

Fer would go on to grab the winner and Clarets boss Sean Dyche bemoaned not getting a penalty, with few protestations coming from his players at the start of a campaign where dissent is being actively punished.

"It goes on a lot in the box from corners and we've been told they are clamping down on it,'' striker Sam Vokes said of shirt-pulling.

"I'm surprised it's not been given but it's one of those. You do have to bite your tongue. It's part of the game now -- full respect for the referees.

"We've got to respect that but when that opportunity comes up it's tough to take and we have to move on.''
