Chelsea youngster Josh McEachran has confirmed via twitter that he is set to join Swansea City on loan on Monday.

Swans boss Brendan Rodgers has been keen to bring in the 18 year-old midfielder for the past few weeks and finally we seem to have confirmation that he will making a temporary switch to South Wales.

The move had initially been delayed as Chelsea are looking at their current midfield injury situation to see if they need him for bench duty on Saturday when they play Sunderland.

The 18 year-old made the headlines himself today, by confirming on his twitter account ‘I`ve finally found out about my loan! Off to Swansea on Monday!!’

The news comes as a big boost for the Swans as they look to maintain their excellent start to life in the Premier League.

Although he’s only 18, many fans, players and Rodgers himself expect big things from the attacking midfielder in the near future, as he has shown superb passing, shooting and set piece ability.

Welcome to Swansea City Josh!
