The 21-year-old Belgian was widely expected to spend the term on loan at Feyenoord's sister club Excelsior, but the Kuip outfit's coaching staff felt he would be better served by spending a season in the top flight.
Ado came calling and quickly agreed a deal with Feyenoord, much to the delight of Swerts.
"Coach Frans Adelaar sees me as a midfielder, I get to stay in the Eredivisie and I don't have to move, it couldn't be better!" he told Feyenoord's website.
Swerts has been told he has the season to prove he is worthy of a place at Feyenoord, as his contract will expire in 2005.
