Plenty of Leeds United fans have reacted well after hearing their club be linked with a move for Reading player John Swift.

The 26-year-old currently plays his football in the Championship but could be destined for a move to the Premier League. Indeed, as reported in The Star, Leeds, Burnley and Wolves all have interest in the midfielder, while Sheffield United have their eye on him too.

The report explains that Swift’s contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, hence all the interest in him from so many clubs.

Details of the story were shared by Leedsunited_news on Twitter and the prospect soon had many club supporters wrapped up in discussion.

Here’s what these Leeds fans said

“He’s brilliant and on the cheap he’d be perfect.”
“Would be a cracking signing, good player and a position we need a decent player who knows the position. Surprised he’s not been picked up by a PL team yet tbh.”
“He’s class I’d love him at Leeds. He’s been one of, if not, the best in that league.”
“Now this is a player I would get excited about. Absolute baller. Would suit our set-up perfectly. Get him signed.”
“I’ve been going on about Swift for a long time now. Questionable source this however I’d take him in a heartbeat. Suits us perfectly! Time will tell.”
“Please please please.”
It’s clear to see just how excited all these supporters are at the idea of signing Swift. Having come through the Chelsea academy, he certainly would arrive with good pedigree.
The centre-mid has really impressed this season with Reading too, claiming eight goals and seven assists from just 17 appearances in the Championship.

However, with plenty of competition to claim his signature, this deal may have a few twists in the tail just yet.
