SWAN CAN BE BACK IN THE SWIM AT WOLVES
KENNY JACKETT believes Wolves are the perfect club for George Swan to rebuild his career.
Swan, the 20-year-old defender released by Manchester City in the summer, has joined the Black Country outfit until Christmas after spending time with the Wolves’ U21 squad.
The youngster, who has had loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday last season and Stromsgodset in Norway but hasn’t played first-team football, scored in the U21s’ 1-0 victory over Bolton and will initially continue his development in the age groups side at Molineux.
A Leeds United youth product, Swan was back at Elland Road in the summer after being released from the Etihad, but has opted to join their Championship rivals.
And Jackett is hopeful that it will not be long before Swan, who has suffered with a string of serious injuries including a broken leg and cruciate ligament surgery, becomes a valuable asset for the newly-promoted side in the Championship.
“He has had a lot of injuries in a young career,” said Jackett. “We want to give him that platform to get over those injuries.
“We are giving him a window-to-window opportunity where we can work really hard with him, to stay fit and play, and after that try to build up his overall fitness to do justice to his considerable talent.”
