Swansea City have lost the race to sign Shrewsbury Town midfielder Josh Laurent after he signed for fellow Championship side Reading this week on a two-year deal.

Reading boss Mark Bowen told his club’s official site:

“Josh is a talented player,” boss Mark Bowen told the club website.

“[He] fits the mould as a hungry, vibrant, energetic young midfielder who I am sure will make an impact at Madejski Stadium.”

The midfielder, who can also play at centre-back was linked with a move to a number of Championship clubs including ourselves and our arch-rivals Cardiff City. Reports suggest that the Swans were interested in taking him on a free transfer with a contract offer being put on the table for the 25-year-old although the club might have put their transfer plans on hold for the time-being given our play-off involvement. You would certainly think that if we did pull off promotion to the top flight then we would look at a higher calibre of player.

Will Swansea City need to change their Summer recruitment plans slightly now?
