The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

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.”
