The 20-year-old has impressed manager Colin Todd since making his first team debut back in November.
Todd is keen to plan for the future by securing the services of his promising younger players and he has started that process by signing Swift.
"John's come in for a few games and he's done well," Todd said.
"He put in a good performance against Walsall and he's one of the ones that will hopefully come through."
The former Bolton Wanderers and Derby County manager added that more of the club's youngsters will also be assessed before the season's end.
"We have to make decisions on about seven of the younger players," he added.
"Craig Bentham came into the team against Walsall and Jake Wright is another one who is doing very well, so we'll see what happens."
The West Yorkshire outfit are also keen to extend centre back Mark Bower's contract, with talks set to start on Friday.
Meanwhile, Bantams striker Kevin Sanasy has joined Conference club Leigh RMI on a month's work experience.
