Player News - Swansea City

Date: Team: Pos:

Martin Olsson has yet to return to training this week following an ankle injury he picked up against Hull City last weekend, making the left-back's availability for tomorrow highly doubtful.

It was a rough Week 28 for the Jacks, as they lost to Hull City, a club chasing them from the relegation zone, while also having a couple of players picking up injuries. While Fernando Llorente was able to shake his problem off, Olsson looks to need more time to recover. Considering he hasn't been officially ruled out and with the international break to follow the weekend, one would imagine Olsson will be fit in time for Week 30, barring a setback. Olsson has bee a great January signing for Paul Clement, but the manager will likely call upon Stephen Kingsley this weekend.

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 before last week, expect the duo to be among Paul Clement's XI in Saturday's late afternoon kickoff.

Injury was added to insult in Swansea City's 2-1 weekend loss to Hull City with a trio of starters limping off.

Swansea confirmed that right-back Angel Rangel is set to miss the rest of the season due to a foot injury. The veteran defender suffered a broken metatarsal that will require surgery, ruling him out for eight to 12 weeks and likely the season. Star forward Fernando Llorente also left the club's loss with a dead leg while left-back Martin Olsson came away with an ankle injury: both of which will be assessed ahead of the weekend match against Bournemouth.

It was a forgettable day for Swansea City, as they handed three points to a team hoping to chase them down and had two players exit early with injuries in a 2-0 loss to Hull City.

With Kyle Naughton out of contention, veteran Angel Rangel was handed a start but just after the half-hour mark, appeared to catch his studs in the turf and was unable to continue. With both natural right backs now injured, Paul Clement brought in Jordi Amat. Then, just before the break, Fernando Llorente picked up a thigh injury and was replaced by Jordan Ayew. The match was still up for grabs after an hour but Hull finally broke through, scoring twice in eight minutes. Alfie Mawson made it interesting though, heading home a ball from the always creative Gylfi Sigurdsson. It was not enough though and the Swans allow the Tigers to close the gap between the two sides in the table.

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.

Swansea City's fortunes in 2017 continue to outshine a dreary opening half of the season in yet another thrilling win on Saturday.

Paul Clement has proven to be the right man to lead a side that once looked destined for relegation at the bottom of the table with three managers in the course of a season. Following a last-second 3-2 win against Burnley, the Swans now sit five points above the bottom three with a manager of the month at the helm. Saturday's win came courtesy of Fernando Llorente, who powered a header over Ben Mee in the 92nd minute to break the deadlock and complete the comeback in front of a raucous Liberty Stadium. His two goals on the day give him 14 in his debut season in the Premier League. Tom Carroll came on in the 90th and ended up with the assist on the match-winner with a perfect cross into the box. Martin Olsson added a goal himself while Gylfi Sigurdsson added to his Premier League-leading assist total.

Swansea City were given a fitness boost as Jefferson Montero and Ki Sung-Yueng returned to training in some capacity this week but both have been ruled out for the weekend tilt against Burnley.

Montero was back training with the team earlier in the week while Ki was participating in individual drills but both need more time to train before fully recovering from their respective injuries. Luciano Narsingh will likely get another crack as a wide option in Swansea's attack this weekend while Wales Online speculates that Jordan Ayew could be handed his first start since joining the club.

Swansea City have received a fitness boost as midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng and winger Jefferson Montero have both returned to training this week.

Montero, who has been out since Boxing Day with a hamstring injury, has returned to train alongside his teammates while Ki is building strength back in his knee doing individual drills and is expected to join the group before the end of the week. What role, if any, they will play in this weekend's match against Burnley is unclear, but expectations should be low for fantasy purposes. Neither player has cemented a role to the point that they would automatically return to the XI, and both players have extra competition since their injuries occurred, with Luciano Narsingh and Jordan Ayew in competition with Montero and Tom Carroll an additional midfield option that Ki will need to unseat. As the club have turned things around positively in recent weeks, Paul Clement will feel little pressure in changing what is currently working.

Swansea City announced defender Federico Fernandez has signed a new contract through the 2020 season.

The 28-year-old has played a key role in new manager Paul Clement's setup since the departure of Bob Bradley. Just a few months ago, rumors swirled of a winter exit with Fernandez struggled for playing time and his form of old. But the Swans have since climbed up the table and out of the relegation zone with Fernandez as the veteran presence in defense. Said the Spaniard: "It has been good for the team because the results and the performances have been better. And to sign a new deal is something special and something positive for me. I am very happy to have signed the contract."

Swansea City were the latest victim of table-leading Chelsea, as a Fernando Llorente goal was not enough to earn a positive result in a 3-1 loss.

Swansea actually entered the day having earned more points in the league in the 2017 calendar year, but their turnaround hit a snag today, as Chelsea were clearly the better side over course of 90 minutes. After conceding the opener, the Jacks found lightning in a bottle just before halftime. A deep free kick by Gylfi Sigurdsson found the head of an unmarked Llorente, who headed it home to level the score. Lukasz Fabianski made a couple of fine saves in the first hour of the match but made a complete mess of a Pedro shot that went through his hands for what proved to be the match-winner. The Swans took it on the chin today but on the bright side, they have a nice run of fixtures over the next four weeks in their ongoing search for points.

Leon Britton is targeting a return to first-team action at Stamford Bridge next weekend.

The Swansea skipper has been limited to just two appearances on the bench in 2017, neither of which resulted in any game time due to a persistent calf problem which has hampered him since November. But, Britton provided manager Paul Clement with a timely boost this week following his return to full training and the 34-year-old will be available to face the Premier League pace setters. Swansea are on the up, securing 3 wins from a possible four, victories which have helped the Welsh side climb out of the relegation zone for the first time since early October. Clement will looking for a similar performance to the one which earned his side maximum points at Anfield last month, while the form of Gylfi Sigurdsson during this period has been key.
Feb 18 - 10:24 AM

Swansea City defender Federico Fernandez confirmed that he is closing in on a new contract with the club.

The 27-year-old defender was nearly sold to West Brom in the winter transfer window, but has come into his own under new manager Paul Clement in a center-half partnership with newcomer Alfie Mawson. Now, Fernandez says he is looking for a long-term stay at the club: "We have been speaking and we are very close to doing that, and probably in the next week we will have a new deal. I heard there was interest during the January window, but when the boss came here I said 'I want to be an important player here', he was confident in me. I am happy to be here, the offer has come in and I am happy to stay in Swansea."

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.
