Swiﬞ on Sheffield United’s radar
READING midfielder John Swift has reportedly been on the radar of Premier League Sheffield United and has been subject to a bid.
Swift has been one of the Royals most influential players since joining on a free transfer from Chelsea in 2016.
Swift has played a starring role for Reading this season despite the team enduring a turbulent season, contributing five league goals and 10 assists so far this season.
He has been linked with both Sheffield United and also Leeds United, who are on the verge of promotion to the top flight.
Royals managerMark Bowen reiterated Swift’s importance to the side after Reading’s 5-0 thrashing of Luton Town on Saturday, but remained guarded on the 25-year-old’s future at the club.
Bowen said: “There will be speculation about him because he’s a very good player. But I don’t want to hear it.”
Swift currently has two years left on his current contract but Bowen admitted that some players may have to be sold in the summer if the right offers come in.
“There is a danger that players, if the right offers come in, could be sold.
“With the financial situation in the game, everybody seems be looking at the situation week byweek, it’s complicated.”
