Alan Nixon is reporting that Leeds United winger Jordan Stevens has completed his loan move to Swindon Town.
Leeds’ promotion to the Premier League and subsequent under-23 business has opened the door for the club’s current youngsters to head out on loan into the EFL.
Stevens is one of those, with Swindon looking like his destination.
As per Alan Nixon on Twitter, Stevens is signing for Swindon and an official announcement seems imminent.
Richie Wellens has been known to be chasing the 20-year-old’s signature for some time, with Stevens finally set for a chance out on loan in the EFL.
He made six substitute appearances for Marcelo Bielsa last season. Five of those were in the Championship, with the other against Arsenal in the FA Cup.
Currently, he’s behind Jack Harrison, Helder Costa and Ian Poveda in the Leeds pecking order.
Crysencio Summerville signing for Leeds has covered Stevens’ move.
This is good news for Stevens.
He needs to start playing senior football and now he’s got the chance to prove himself in the EFL.
Leeds will surely have a watchful eye on his move to Swindon given Bielsa’s admiration of the 20-year-old, with the view to integrating him back at Elland Road long-term.
Stevens has pace to burn, but his decision-making needs work.
That’s going to come out on loan.
