Sheffield United manager Slavisa Jokanovic will allow defender Max Lowe to go out on loan, with Swansea City keen on taking the left-back.
Lowe has struggled to get going ever since making the move from Derby County alongside Jayden Bogle last year. Bogle has enjoyed some fine displays and moments, while Lowe has failed to really impress.
A couple of niggling injuries have also not helped Lowe, who didn’t even come off the bench in midweek against Carlisle and looks to be behind at least three players in the fight for the left-back slot.
And according to Sunday’s printed edition of the Sun (p63), Lowe will sign for Swansea City in a move which will allow Jake Bidwell to join Middlesbrough and Neil Warnock.
We wrote in midweek about Lowe’s future and how a move would help both he and the club. It seems, then, that those thoughts are being proved correct.
Max Lowe to Swansea makes all kind of sense
As we’ve mentioned previously, there seems to be no future for Max Lowe at Sheffield United. Not in the immediate anyway.
Jack Robinson, Ben Osborn, Enda Stevens, and Rhys Norrington-Davies are all ahead of him in the pecking order. For his own sake, then, he needs to find somewhere to play regular football.
We saw last night that Swansea are trying to play nice football under new manager Russell Martin. This could suit Lowe, and if he gets a chance in that wing-back system, he could do well.
But for United, it’s about moving some on now. Unfortunately, it appears this is another Chris Wilder signing that simply hasn’t worked.
