Sydney coach John Longmire announced that recruit and former Pie Taylor Adams will debut for the club against West Coast.

Having crossed from one of the biggest clubs in the land, Adams' experience and tenacity at the contest was an area of improvement for the Swans from 2023 and a reason for trading him in.

Despite suffering a medial ligament injury in his left knee during a practice match against Brisbane on the eve of the season, the 30-year-old has done everything necessary to make himself available once again.

Longmire lauded Adams' immediate impact at his third club, saying he's assisted in developing the young midfielders in his short time at the Swans.

Taylor Adams, if he gets through training today, will play," Longmire said on Wednesday.

"That'll be exciting for Taylor as well. We looked at the team last week and we had seven midfielders that were 23 and under last week.

"We've got a really young midfield group and then there's Isaac. We feel like that group's been terrific.

“One of the reasons that we wanted some more experience last year with Taylor was to be able to help that young midfield group out. If he trains today, he'll play his first game for us. We're really looking forward to that.”

The Swans have been without experienced trio Luke Parker, Callum Mills and Adams for the opening month of the season, with the latter ready to make his mark.

"He had a great pre-season. From the moment he walked into the place he provided Luke Parker and Callum Mills with extra help in terms of leadership," Longmire said.

After a decade at Collingwood, Adams opted to depart the club thinking there was no room for him in the midfield, with the advancement of some of their younger talent.

Injuring his hamstring during the 2023 Finals Series, the ex-Giant missed out on the elusive premiership glory and knew that it was time for a fresh start.

'It would have been nice to be a part of the grand final, but so it goes,' Adams said shortly after joining the Swans.

'I was clearly playing out of my preferred position at Collingwood towards the end of the year.....I [also] felt my footy was on the decline, and there's probably space for another inside midfielder at the Swans.

'The footy club is in a great position, they [Swans] played in the grand final two years ago and finals this year."

Former teammate and friend Brodie Grundy was in a similar boat after a tumultuous year at Melbourne following his controversial departure from the Pies the season before.

The pair reunited in New South Wales and will play together for the first time since the 2022 ANZAC Day clash in Round 6.
