Bersant back, Leroy a doubt

Bersant Celina is available for Swansea City's meeting with Hull City, but captain Leroy Fer is a doubt ahead of Saturday's game.

Celina missed the Easter fixtures against Rotherham and Ipswich due to illness, and had also been nursing a foot injury picked up in the win over Middlesbrough.

But manager Graham Potter confirmed the Kosovo international is in the frame to face the Tigers.

"We have got Bersant back in the group," said Potter.

"His is a welcome return, he is an important player. We will decide whether he is ready to start because he has been a bit in and out of training these last couple of weeks.

"He will probably be closer to the bench, but we will see. But it is great to have him in the group."

But midfielder Fer is a doubt after Potter revealed the Dutchman has had a knee issue this week.

Fer made his return from three months out with a hamstring injury with a late substitute outing at Ipswich on Monday, but may not be able to be involved against Nigel Adkins' side.

"Leroy is okay, he has had a bit of a feeling in his knee so we will check that but hopefully he will be okay," added Potter.

"It's unfortunate for him he has not been great around the group, and when he has been on the pitch his influence has helped us, but probably not as much as we would like, or he would like."
