Reading fans react as Leeds and Sheffield United reportedly eye John Swift

Leeds United and Sheffield United are both reportedly interested in signing Reading playmaker John Swift this summer – and Reading supporters have reacted on Twitter, with many open to selling their midfield star.

Swift, 25, has enjoyed another excellent season as Reading seemed to have steered clear of a potential relegation dogfight with six league games to play. Swift has had a hand in 15 goals from midfield, during his 35 outings.

Indeed, the Chelsea youth player has scored five times this season but he has proved much more creative – laying on 10 assists for his teammates. He is renowned for his ability to score from set-pieces and long range.

A 13-time England Under-21 international, Swift has enormous potential and is now somewhat experienced in the Championship – having clocked up a huge 159 appearances despite only being 25.

Now, he could be looking to the Premier League with Leeds likely to gain promotion and Sheffield United fighting for European qualification in the top tier. The Reading Chronicle say both are keen, with the Blades tabling an offer.

Reading supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that both Leeds and Sheffield United are interested in their number 10, and many are open to seeing Swift move on for pastures new – but only at the right price.
