Leeds United youngster Jordan Stevens has sealed his anticipated loan switch to Swindon Town, according to Alan Nixon.
The reliable journalist shared the news on his personal Twitter account on Monday afternoon, with Marcelo Bielsa finally sanctioning the move.
Swindon. Stevens in. As anticipated.

It is believed that the arrival of Crycensio Summerville last week has allowed Stevens to go out and get some senior experience in League One.
Bielsa initially blocked the move of the winger to Swindon, but it appears his mind has changed over the immediate future of the 20-year-old.
The South American spoke out about the future of his younger players, with the likes of Robbie Gotts also set for a move to Championship side Huddersfield.
Players such as Alfie McCalmont also have offers on the table, and the exit of Stevens could open the floodgates for these academy talents.
Stevens hasn’t been involved with the first-team in the Premier League and has started the under-23s first two games against both Stoke and Wolves.
Stevens previous experience in the football league came from his time at Forest Green back in the 2017/18 season before his switch to Leeds.
The 20-year-old completed 425 minutes of action that season, and only managed to score a single goal and deliver zero assists in his 12 outings.
The winger is highly regarded by the Whites and Bielsa and has featured on eight different occasions in the past two seasons.
This move will give him the chance of action every week in League One, and hopefully, that exposure will see him improve dramatically for next season.
