Defender agrees deal

Wolves have added George Swan to the Under-21 squad after the former Manchester City defender agreed a deal to go through until Christmas.

Swan, who turns 20 on Friday, has played several of the team’s recent Under-21 fixtures and has now agreed the contract to continue his development and prove he is free of some recent injury problems.

The big defender has impressed during his appearances, and, having left City at the end of last season, now takes the same path as Under-21s coach Scott Sellars to move to Wolves.

“George Swan has accepted a contract until Christmas,” said Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett.

“He has had a lot of injuries in a young career so far and looks a good player at Under-21 level.

“We want to give him that platform now to get over those injuries, which have been extensive, and see if he can come through it and show the potential that he showed previously.

“We are giving him a window to window opportunity where we can work really hard with him one, to stay fit and play, and after that try to build up his overall fitness to do justice to the considerable amount of talent that he has.

“He has had injury problems but he is young enough to come through that and has been here a number of weeks and Scott (Sellars) knows him well from his time with Manchester City.

“He wants to play and get on the ball and is good in both boxes to it will be interesting to see how he develops over the next few months.”

Swan has already opened his goalscoring account for Wolves, notching the only goal of the game as a trialist in the Under-21s 1-0 over Bolton at Telford.
