Leroy Fer will miss the remainder of the campaign after he was stretchered off during the first half of Saturdays 1-1 draw at Leicester.
The Swans midfielder collapsed in a heap, with no-one around him, while running with the ball at the King Power Stadium and the early signs were not good. "It looks like a serious injury at first viewing," said Carlos Carvalhal after the game. "I think it’s an Achilles problem, but we are not sure yet. We have to wait for it to settle down in the next 48 hours and then we will see." However, those concerns proved to be well-placed as a scan on Sunday morning confirmed the Dutch midfielder had ruptured his Achilles tendon and he will now undergo surgery to repair the damage. Teammate Nathan Dyer suffered a similar injury just over a year ago, a setback which ruled him out for over 7 months. Tom Carroll is expected to come into side. Feb 4 - 3:54 PM
