Blair ruled out with foot injury

14th August 2017

Under-23s midfielder Ryan Blair could face up to two months on the sidelines after breaking a metatarsal in his right foot.

Blair sustained the injury during the U23s’ 2-0 defeat against Liverpool during their Premier League 2 defeat at Landore on Friday.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Swans last year, is expected to be unavailable for the next six to eight weeks.

“I am gutted,” said Blair. “I heard the break and knew I had done something serious as soon as it had happened.

“To pick up an injury so soon into the season is a blow, but now I must refocus my attention on healing myself and look to come back stronger.”
