John Swift has described the decision to extend his loan at Brentford from Chelsea as an 'easy' one to make.

The midfielder, who has scored three times during his loan spell so far, has impressed head coach Dean Smith in his first month in charge.

And the two clubs announced on Monday that they had extended his loan for the rest of the season.

He said: “It was an easy decision. As I'm playing, it was the only decision I was going to make and I'm pleased Brentford wanted to keep me as well.

“I'm glad it's all done and I can be here at the end of the season, which is the main thing.”

Swift has enjoyed working with Smith and has been a regular under the 44-year-old, partnering Alan Judge and Sergi Canos in an exciting front three.

He explained: “It's been good. I've got a lot of minutes which is the biggest thing for me and we've gone on good runs since he's come in.

“We've been winning games and we were unlucky at Birmingham. Training has been good and it's paying off.”

Swift's three goals have all come away from Griffin Park, at Charlton, Bolton and Cardiff, and he is keen to add to his tally over the rest of the season.

He added: “Every player loves to score. I will try my hardest to score in every game and get assists as well.

“That's what I'm in the team to do. If I don't do this then I'm not performing. They're the two things I'm in the team to do mainly. Hopefully, I can push on and get a few more.”
