With his loan move to Swansea City complete, the attention will now turn to keeping tabs on how Jordan Morris fares in his new surroundings, and the first chance to do so could come as soon as Wednesday.
As Swansea continue their English Championship season and look to remain in position for promotion to the Premier League, their next match will be a midweek clash with Brentford, and head coach Steve Cooper said that his newest acquisition could be in line to see the field.

Morris’ transfer from the Seattle Sounders to Swansea was finalized last week, sending the star winger right into the thick of his new club’s battle for promotion to the EPL. Swansea are currently second on the Championship table with 46 points.
The 26-year-old attacker figures to be a key part of Swansea’s bid, arriving after a standout run with his hometown club in Seattle. Morris is coming off his best MLS season in 2020 that saw him score 10 goals and dish out eight assists in 22 games and has racked up 35 goals and 20 assists overall in 105 career MLS games.
Whenever he does see the field for Swansea, Morris’ first stint overseas will certainly draw plenty of attention from MLS and US men’s national team fans alike.
