Reading star ‘ready for step up’ says John Terry – ‘surprised’ by lack of PL approaches

Speaking on Instagram Live (quotes via HITC), Aston Villa’s assistant manager John Terry has said he is ‘surprised’ Reading star John Swift has not sealed a move to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old has spent much of this season out through a hamstring injury. However, his performances have still earned high praise.

In his nine Championship appearances, Swift has netted one goal and laid on one assist. The Royals are yet to lose a game with the playmaker in the side this season, winning six and drawing three.

“I love Swifty. He’s been on fire at Reading and they’re playing well as well.
