Swansea City have been given a boost ahead of their trip to Bournemouth this weekend, with Kyle Naughton and Fernando Llorente available for selection.
While Llorente's return may make more headlines in the fantasy community, it is Naughton's return that is most beneficial to the Swans, as he is the only natural fit at right back following the season-ending injury to Angel Rangel obtained in last weekend's loss to Hull City. That being the case and with Llorente in good form prior to last week, expect the duo to be among Paul Clement's XI in Saturday's late afternoon kickoff. Fri, Mar 17, 2017 06:46:00 AM

Kyle Naughton has been ruled out of action this weekend when Swansea City pay a visit to Hull City, but the full-back is expected to return to training next week.

Initially, the Swans feared Naughton would miss several weeks after picking the injury up last weekend against Burnley, but a scan of his hamstring has revealed only a minor problem and Paul Clement anticipates Naughton will be in contention for the Week 29 match against AFC Bournemouth. Angel Rangel is set to start in Naughton's place this weekend and could make for a sneaky one-week budget defensive play in salary cap leagues.

Swansea scored a dramatic winner deep into injury-time as their recent upturn in form continues under new boss Paul Clement.

The Jacks made it 4 wins from six to keep the pressure on their relegation rivals with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Burnley at the Liberty Stadium. Sean Dyche’s men were making a mockery of their poor record on the road as they twice took the lead through Andre Gray in the hope of securing three-points for the first time away from Turf Moor in 2016/17. However, goals from Martin Olsson and in-from striker Fernando Llorente were enough to edge a five-goal thriller as the Welsh side creep closer to safety. Swansea are one of the few sides to have a fixture in GW28 [away at Hull] and Paul Clement could welcome Jefferson Montero and Sung-Yeung Ki back into the fold but Kyle Naughton is considered a doubt after limping off on Saturday with a hamstring complaint. Angel Rangel will deputise if needed.

Kyle Naughton had to exit Swansea's loss to Stoke City early last night as the defender had become ill.

There isn't too much silver lining to the cloud hanging over South Wales these days, as the Swans attempt to turn their season around under Bob Bradley, but at least Naughton's confirmed illness offers better news than the original speculation that assumed he was removed with a muscle injury. With the Monday night affair, it is a short week for the Swans but Naughton will likely be in contention again in Week 10. If not, Angel Rangel, who replaced Naughton in the loss to the Potters, will step in.

Kyle Naughton will be available for Swansea City's Week 22 match with Watford on Monday night after successfully appealing the red card he received in the loss to Sunderland.

A bittersweet victory for the Swans as they can now look to Naughton instead of having to depend solely on Angel Rangel for the next three games, but they understandably feel cheated with the result against the Black Cats, who scored three of their four goals with the man advantage. It is still a murky situation as Alan Curtis has rotated at many a position since his time in charge, so guessing who will start between Naughton and Rangel right now is a risky proposition.

Swansea City had a defensive disaster and were not helped by some questionably poor refereeing, as opponents Sunderland closed the gap of the relegation zone in a 2-4 loss for the Jacks.

On one hand, Swansea were given a soft penalty when Wes Brown fouled Andre Ayew in the box, allowing Gylfi Sigurdsson to equalize after Swansea conceded an early goal. Everything else went against them though. Kyle Naughton was sent off for a high tackle on Yann M'Vila in the 38th minute, a seemingly harsh decision by the referee. Despite the loss of a man, they managed to take the lead shortly thereafter, when Ayew took a long pass from Lukasz Fabianski, absolutely schooled Lee Cattermole to get into the area and struck a fine blast to make it 2-1. After the break, the missing man was felt, as Swansea conceded three times. Angel Rangel came on to fill in the spot for Naughton, and will surely get the nod in Week 22 assuming Naughton is to serve his suspension, though the Swans could very well appeal.

Kyle Naughton was absent for the birth of daughter in Week 8 when Swansea City drew with Tottenham, but is back in the fold for Week 9.

Swansea veteran Angel Rangel filled in for the absent Naughton but the latter is expected to slot back into the right back spot for the Monday night match against Stoke at the Liberty Stadium. The Swans are in pursuit of only their second clean sheet since Week 2 while the Potters have not been held goalless since their loss at The Emirates in Week 5.

Swansea City were quite successful in shopping for new players last season, with Kyle Naughton being another shining example.

Purchased from Tottenham in the January window, Naughton immediately established himself as first choice right back, wrangling the job away from veteran Angel Rangel, and was part of a great run of team defense before an ankle injury saw him miss all but the final game of the season. He projects to keep his place entering next year and with a generally sound defensive philosophy, he should be an excellent fantasy pick in plus matchups.

Kyle Naughton returned from injury in time to start the final game of the season for Swansea City, but the result was not as hoped as they fell to Crystal Palace, 1-0.

While Naughton's return was a pleasant surprise, Swansea were hampered by the absence of three key players in their midfield: Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jonj Shelvey and Ki Sung-Yueng, all instrumental in one game or another throughout the season, did not make the squad. Hence, while they did well to play an even possession battle with Palace, their chances in the final third lacked that creativity or extra pass that could provide a better shot at beating the Eagles keeper. Though the Swans drop their final two games, the first season under former player/now manager Garry Monk has to be viewed as a solid one.

The South Wales Evening Post is reporting that Swansea defender Kyle Naughton's season is over as a result of his ankle injury.

Naughton swiped the right back job from Angel Rangel immediately upon his arrival and along with Jack Cork has impressed immensely for the Swans since both were signed in the January window. Now without him, Garry Monk will likely turn back to Rangel to finish out the season. Rangel becomes the cheapest route to the Swans defense for fantasy purposes now and with their list of fixtures to come, he should be considered as a premium budget option. That said, Ashley Williams is only 1.5m more currently in the Yahoo game and is a better value.

As Swansea close in on their record Premier League points tally Saturdays’ win over Hull City was marred by the loss of full-back Kyle Naughton who was taken to hospital post-match for further tests on an ankle injury.

The former Tottenham defender was challenged by David Meyler early in the second half, a tackle which was deemed dangerous by referee Andre Marriner resulting in the Hull City midfielder receiving his marching orders and subsequent 3-match ban. Kyle Naughton will now face a worrying few days until the extent of the injury is known, however the swelling suggests tissue damage which is likely to mean at least a few weeks on sidelines. Swansea move onto [46] points just one behind their previous best with 7 games still remaining; a remarkable achievement considering the club cashed in on their biggest asset and leading scorer Wilfried Bony during the January transfer window.

Kyle Naughton has taken the right back role and ran with it since his arrival to Swansea City, rendering veteran Angel Rangel nothing more than bench depth these days.

There was little buzz about the acquisition of Naughton over the winter window, but as we look at the impact some of the January signings have had with their new clubs, it would be hard to argue that Naughton hasn't been a rousing success. Swansea, despite their loss to Spurs last time out, have shown themselves well over a period of time when some of their better known players had moved on (Bony) or were injured (Sigurdsson). Rangel may get a crack at starting again before the season ends, if only to boost his value on the transfer market, but Garry Monk appears satisfied with sticking with Naughton.

Kyle Naughton got his first start as a member of Swansea City last weekend and came up big helping the Swans collect a clean sheet and 14 fantasy points for himself.

No one gave the Swans much of a shot to come away with a positive result against Southampton last weekend, but while Jonjo Shelvey earned the headlines with his game-winning goal, Naughton was an unsung hero, starting at right back over veteran Angel Rangel. Naughton is versatile enough to handle either fullback position and can provide the perfect bench replacement for normal starters Neil Taylor and Rangel, but after last weekend's performance, it may prove difficult for Garry Monk to come up with a valid reason to sit Naughton down. It is a good problem to have in terms of depth but it creates a potential problem for fantasy managers. Ashley Williams and Lukasz Fabianski are the trusted option in the back for the Swans.

Swansea City have strengthened their defensive options with the signing of Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Naughton.

The 26-year-old, who completed his medical today (Thursday), has penned a three-and-a-half year deal at the Liberty Stadium for an undisclosed fee. Naughton, a former England Under-21 international, made 74 appearances for Spurs – 42 in the Barclays Premier League – during his five-and-a-half year spell at the London club. Predominantly a right-back, Naughton, who will wear squad number 26, will also provide cover on the opposite flank to bolster manager Garry Monk’s defensive options. He will now be available for Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Championship side Blackburn Rovers. His arrival means he becomes the third signing of the January transfer window, following Benfica loanee Nelson Oliveira and midfielder Matt Grimes to the Liberty.

Tottenham have accepted a £5 million bid from Swansea for defender Kyle Naughton.

The right back is currently discussing personal terms with the Welsh club. Naughton, 26, has struggled to establish himself in Spurs' first-team since arriving from Sheffield United in 2009 and has been the subject of interest from a number of Premier League clubs in the current window.
