Paul Clement has declared Nathan Dyer fit for selection as the winger has made it all the way back from a ruptured Achilles.
Dyer's injury happened way back in February but he has been building his match fitness up in recent weeks with the club's U-23s and is ready to make the senior squad. It would be hard to imagine Dyer being much more than a bench option for a while given the lengthy layoff and the fact that this is the second major injury he has recovered from in the past year and change, as he had ankle surgery before the Achilles injury, making only 3 starts in between. He has a long path to being a fantasy commodity but if the Swans are struggling for goals, Dyer has a chance to make an impact. Tue, Oct 10, 2017 06:57:00 AM

Nathan Dyer is "confident" he can get back to his best as he battles his way back from injury.

The Swansea winger spent 2015/16 on-loan at Leicester City, and it was against his former employers back in February, that he suffered a serious Achilles rupture. Making only his third start of the campaign due to ankle surgery 6 months earlier, Dyer injured his left ankle during the opening exchanges, and a scan later confirmed the full extent of the damage which meant going under the knife for a second time. However, speaking to the Swansea website, he confirmed: "Things have been going well. Touch wood there have been no setbacks so far so I can keep pushing towards getting back soon. I will be doing some running on the pitch in the next couple of weeks hopefully and then we will see. Hopefully by the end of September I will be back in contention."

In a campaign marred by injury, Nathan Dyer will miss the final three months of the season after undergoing surgery for a ruptured Achilles tendon.

After having a season to remember, spending it on loan to title-winners Leicester city, Dyer follows it up with a season to forget. In September, he suffered an ankle injury that required him to miss significant playing time. He has made only a handful of starts but one of them was this past weekend. Sadly, the injury occurred only seven minutes into the contest as Dyer was given a chance to contribute to the club's turnaround under Paul Clement. In fantasy terms, one fewer option on the wing increases the value of the likes of Luciano Narsingh and Jordan Ayew for managers looking for help in draft leagues with Narsingh likely ahead of the pecking order going into their next match.

Nathan Dyer is set for a period on the sidelines after limping off during the opening exchanges of Sundays 2-0 win over relegation rivals Leicester City.

The winger was making a rare start, only his third in an injury hampered Premier League season, but lasted less than seven minutes after injuring his Achilles following an awkward landing. Speaking after the game, manager Paul Clement admitted "the initial prognosis doesn't look good" although Dyer will be assessed over the next 24-48 hours to determine the extent of the damage. Level on points prior to kick off, Claudio Ranieri was hoping today would represent the start of a "new season" for Leicester following their midweek FA Cup replay win over Derby. However, goals from defenders Alfie Mawson and Martin Olsson took Swansea four points clear of the relegation places while pushing the Foxes closer to the drop zone following their fifth consecutive league defeat.

Swansea City confirmed that wingers Nathan Dyer and Jefferson Montero are due back in full training this week.

Dyer has been missing for most of the season due to an ongoing ankle injury that required surgery in late September. But the winger is on track to return to match action two months after the operation. Meanwhile, Jefferson Montero is set to join him in full training this week after being fitted with a protective cast and cleared for the weekend trip to Everton after sustaining a broken arm against Manchester United in Gameweek 11.

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.
