Swansea City confirmed that winger Nathan Dyer will miss about two months after undergoing ankle surgery last week.

After returning from loan at Leicester City last season, where he won the Premier League title as a little-used substitute, Dyer has only made one Premier League appearance this season which came off the bench against Hull City in Week 2. But bone growth on his ankle limited him in the past month before going under the knife: "The operation went well," said Swans head of performance Richard Buchanan. The specialists are pleased with the outcome and it is estimated that Nathan is likely to be out for between seven and nine weeks."

Nathan Dyer will miss up to two months as the winger requires surgery to remove extra bone growth in his ankle.

Dyer stated that he began to feel pain in his ankle shortly after Swansea's preseason stint in the United States, which may explain why we have not seen much of him this season. Before his loan spell at Leicester last season, he was a regular starter for the Jacks going back to their days in the Championship. So far in this campaign, he has only made one seven-minute cameo appearance for a club that has yet to get much help from their starting wingers. Perhaps when Dyer returns to fitness he can challenge for a spot at some point this season.

Swansea City has announced winger Nathan Dyer has signed a new four-year contract to keep him at the club through the summer of 2020.

Dyer was fortuitously loaned out to Leicester City last season, where he won the Premier League title mostly as a late-second-half substitute. But the 28-year-old returned from the loan entering the final year of his contract before signing the new deal with the Swans. Said Dyer: "I was on loan last season and I had a good year at Leicester – the experience I had was unbelievable. But I’m happy to be back here at the club that first gave me the opportunity to show what I can do. Coming back, there was only one thought in my mind – impress the new manager, speak to the chairman, get into the team and play games. "

For the first time this season, Leicester City failed to score as they were not their usual selves in a 1-0 loss to Liverpool.

In a league where one has to expect the unexpected, Liverpool truly flipped the script on the Foxes. Jamie Vardy shook off a hamstring issue during the week, but he did not look as sharp in his runs and positioning as he usually does while Riyad Mahrez had a couple of chances but his shots were off target. It is a bit alarming that they looked so sluggish with another big match against Manchester City on Tuesday. It looked to be headed to a 0-0 result, but the Reds grabbed a winner in the 63rd minute to stop Leicester's seemingly unstoppable momentum. The Foxes had their best chance by Nathan Dyer thwarted just ten minutes later. They still sit top of the table, though Arsenal can level on points with a win later in the day.

Nathan Dyer will not be able to face Swansea due to the terms of his loan agreement.

Dyer will have to sit this one out. He hasn't been great for Leicester City so far and has been dealing with some injuries as well. He isn't worth holding onto in any leagues at the moment, but keep an eye out for him once he returns to fill fitness as he might earn himself some playing time.

Nathan Dyer will face a late fitness test ahead of Leicester City's match against Norwich.

Dyer has been dealing with a knee issue since joining Leicester on loan from Swansea and he will have to test his fitness before the match on Saturday. If he is declared fit, he could start or come off the bench, but either way, it's too risky to use him in fantasy tomorrow. Hold off at least another week.

Claudio Ranieri has confirmed that Nathan Dyer will miss the visit of Arsenal this weekend as the Swansea loanee continues his recovery from a knee injury.

Dyer hasn’t featured since colliding with Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan in GW5 after scoring his sides winning goal. However the winger is close "He's getting better, but he is not at 100 per cent yet." There are no other fitness concerns for the Foxes – apart from long term absentee Matty James – and Ranieri will consider his options on Friday after those that were involved in the Capital One cup have recovered. In-from players – Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez – will be among the first names on the team sheet following their impressive start to the season.

Nathan Dyer was absent from the Leicester side which managed to pick up a point from the Britannia Stadium on Saturday despite falling behind for the fourth successive PL game.

Dyer was introduced from the bench at Villa Park last time out and grabbed a last minute winner to cap a remarkable comeback for Leicester, however his goal came at a cost. Dyer bravely nipped between two defenders to head home a Riyad Mahrez cross but in doing so was clattered by home keeper Brad Guzan. It was the physiotherapist who told Dyer that he had scored after the winger was almost knocked unconscious. But having been cleared to play the Swansea loanee picked up a minor knee injury and was rested as a precaution. Ranieri also confirmed that N’Kolo Kante could be available for the Capital One Cup game on Tuesday as his withdrawal was due to cramp.

Nathan Dyer has seen the writing on the wall left by Andre Ayew and decided that his best course of action is a season-long loan to Leicester City.

Andre Ayew has been one of the signings of the summer already and the man he supplanted in the Swans starting line-up, Nathan Dyer, has taken the hint and left town in search of playing time. His move to Leicester City certainly doesn't guarantee playing time on the right side of the attack given the Foxes' strong attacking start to the season but there's at least a better chance of playing time with a man called The Tinkerman in charge.

Nathan Dyer, Matt Grimes, and Marvin Emnes scored as the Swans dispatched York City in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

The story rings familiar. Premier League team changes out almost entire starting eleven but still manages to easily outclass a lower division foe. These are the blowouts that make the upsets so special. Garry Monk's side was entirely different than the starting eleven that could manage only a draw at the Stadium of Light over the weekend. Fortunately, the results were better this time around and the Swans will move on to the third round of the League Cup.

Nathan Dyer saw a drop in production from his previous season and it resulted in having his minutes scaled back.

Actually, Dyer played just over 100 minutes more over the course of the 2014/2015 season that he did the previous year, but it took a season-ending injury to Wayne Routledge to allow Dyer to catch back up. He registered only three goals this season, half of what he totaled the year before. Now entering his late 20's, next season will decide if his down year was a blip or if he is beginning a steady decline. He is a popular figure for the club, having been with them since their Championship days. He will likely be given every chance to re-establish himself.

With Wayne Routledge lost for the rest of the season, it appears Nathan Dyer will be given a run in the XI and he can be a productive fantasy weapon.

Dyer has been a mainstay on the right wing in Swansea's 4-3-3 formation for several seasons until this campaign, as Gary Monk has been shaking up tactics and giving pitch time to others since mid-February. Dyer has a pretty good track record in fantasy when playing regularly and should be considered as a budget option for the final stretch of the season. More can be read about him in this week's Bargain Hunter column.

Garry Monk revealed during his press conference for Swansea City that winger Nathan Dyer will be available for selection when the Swans host Queens Park Rangers tomorrow.

Since grabbing his second and third goals of the season in Week 2, Dyer has failed to find paydirt, with some nagging injuries eating into his pitch time. Gylfi Sigursson and Wifried Bony are the premium picks you want from the Swans attack in a very attractive matchup with a listless Rangers defense. Still, Dyer has been a decent budget pick in most fantasy games for years now, and a matchup like this may be just what the doctor ordered for him to grab a haul.

Swansea's dream start to the season continued with an easy 3-0 win over West Brom that featured a Nathan Dyer brace.

Nathan Dyer scored his first just seconds after the opening whistle from a Gylfi Sigurdsson backheel. Wayne Routledge scored a crazy jumping side volley for the Swans second. Dyer completed the scoring in the second half when he beat Ben Foster to his near side. Wilfried Bony should have scored as well seeing one great chance go over the bar and another kept out of the goal by a defender's arm without it being called.
