Crysencio Summerville’s completed move to Leeds United has paved the way for Jordan Stevens to leave on loan, according to Adam Pope.
Writing via his personal Twitter account on Wednesday, the BBC Radio Leeds journalist reported that Stevens, 20, is now set to join Swindon Town on a temporary basis.
The fee is undisclosed but believed to be seven figures. It should pave way for Stevens’ expected move to Swindon. #lufc

Last week, Swindon manager Richie Wellens told BBC Radio Wiltshire that he was expecting to sign the young midfielder from the Whites after they finished signing someone else.
It now turns out that the player Wellens was referring to is Summerville, who’s joined the Yorkshire giants from Feyenoord for an undisclosed fee.
Stevens will benefit a lot from joining Swindon on loan as long as he plays plenty of first-team football.
The former Forest Green Rovers player, who can play in the centre of the midfield and out wide, has only made six senior appearances since joining Leeds in January 2018.
Five of those appearances came last season as Marcelo Bielsa used Stevens when other senior players were injured while the Gloucester-born ace was also handed an appearance in the win over Charlton on the final day of the campaign.
Stevens has plenty of potential but he’s not going to meet what is expected of him by playing every now and then for Leeds and spending the bulk of his time in the Under-23s or on Bielsa’s bench.
James Milner was sent on loan to the Robins by Leeds at the start of his career.
We, and Stevens, wouldn’t mind him turning out like the former Elland Road star.
In other Leeds United news, the Whites are in a game of cat and mouse to sign this forward.
