Gower backs Swansea bid for Chelsea prospect Josh McEachran

Swansea City midfielder Mark Gower has backed their pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran.

Gower knows the youngster's arrival would make competition for midfield places even hotter.

But he says: "The manager is looking to push the club forward by bringing someone like Josh in.

"He looks like a fantastic talent, so I'd welcome that because it would give everyone the chance to train and play with quality players. It will give us a competitive edge among the midfield lads.

"At the moment, I have the shirt and hopefully I will keep it. I had to wait for my chance earlier in the season and unfortunately for Kemy, he got injured.

"But if I can keep performing and help the team win then the others will have to wait."
