Chelsea have confirmed on their official website that midfielder John Swift has completed a loan move to League One side Swindon Town.
The 19 year-old was a part of the Blues’ successful U-21 side which won the Premier League last season, and his efforts were rewarded when Jose Mourinho gave him a call-up to the first team. He was given his debut on the final day of last season, coming on as a substitute in a 2-1 win at Cardiff.

Swift will spend the rest of the current season on loan at Swindon, to help his progress towards the first team at Stamford Bridge. The talented Englishman is one of the most highly-rated players from Chelsea’s academy, which has produced several starlets in the last couple of years.
Another Chelsea youngster, Alex Kiwomya, also completed a loan move away from Cobham today. The 18 year-old striker will spend the month of January at League One side Barnsley.
