Agent of Wolves target comments on his future

Reading midfielder John Swift is reportedly a transfer target for Wolves.

The Englishman’s contract is running out at the end of the season, which raises the prospect of a cut-price January deal.

He could of course move for free in the summer, as Wolves continue their search for a new central midfielder.

But Leeds United are also said to be keen and Swift’s agent has commented on those links.

LUFC Fan Zone report on Instagram that they have exclusively spoken to the player’s agent. He confirms there has been no approach from Leeds.

“There’s been a lot of speculation in the media about different Premiership clubs being interested in John,” he said.

“Leeds is a great club. Their style of play, manager, and fans would be good for John.

“No formal approaches have been made that we are aware of by Leeds at this stage.”

So Swift’s agent has offered something of a come-and-get-me plea to Leeds, meaning it seems his client is keen to go there.

That said, there has been no offer and Wolves are currently in a far better league position than Leeds.

That means Bruno Lage could nip in and take advantage of Swift’s contract situation to bolster his midfield.

Time will tell if Wolves’ interest in Swift is concrete, or like Leeds’, it is reported in the press without being formalised yet.
