A FLW exclusive from the start of January stated that Swift was on the radar at Premier League clubs Brentford and Leeds United, as it remains to be seen if the Baggies will face Premier League competition as summer nears. 

The verdict 

Swift’s Reading is career is likely to be over, with interest set to accumulate in the coming months, and with the exciting midfielder currently out injured. 

It remains to be seen if he will be ruled out for what remains after he hobbled off during a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City earlier in the month. 

Proving to be a level above the Championship at times, it will be interesting to see if a move to the Premier League could come to fruition, however, if not, then West Brom could be an ideal destination. 

Still possessing quality in abundance at The Hawthorns, the summer will give them an excellent opportunity to bolster competition levels within the squad, with the potential arrival of Swift an exciting thought.
