Jefferson Montero finalised a loan move to West Brom from Swansea on deadline day as Baggies boss Darren Moore made multiple additions to his promotion-pushing side – the Swans, meanwhile, must have forgotten to put out the welcome mat and made zero signings, instead letting four leave.
The Ecuadorian has bags of pace and a decent end product but hasn’t started a game under Graham Potter this season, making all of his league appearances off the bench.
Entering the fray just before the hour mark against Birmingham on Tuesday, the winger teed up Oli McBurnie for his side’s second but just days later he’s no longer a Swansea player.

The 29-year-old arrived at the Liberty Stadium in 2014 from Mexican outfit Morielo and has gone on to make 84 appearances for the Welsh outfit, chalking up two goals and 14 assists.
Despite that pretty dismal return, the 64-cap international offered a different dimension to the Swans attack and the decision let him go, particularly to a promotion rival, seems a bizarre one.
Here’s how the Liberty Stadium faithful reacted to Montero’s exit…
you forgot to mention the part where west brom get him permanently in the summer for a stupidly low fee

Cue the negative tweets about him, don’t care what anyone says he’s one of of main threats, strange deal! Came off the bench Tuesday to set up 2 goals, looks dangerous every time he comes on! Weird one

Well this is a joke. Been outstanding for Swansea when he’s played. Done over Millwall and Sheffield United alone.
