Jordi set to return to training

18th October 2018

Jordi Govea will return to training next week following a three-month injury lay-off.

The 19-year-old left-back, who signed on a free transfer from Real Madrid in July, has been sidelined with a double tear to his right hamstring.

Govea, who was born in Ecuador but can play for Spain, is expected to need a few weeks' training before being ready for match action.

“He has worked hard and we are pleased with his progress,” said Swans Under-23s physio Huw Roberts.

“He is a strong lad who has come through a difficult injury. He has put in a lot of effort to make sure he is back up to speed.

“Despite the injury he has kept a smile on his face which shows his character and we are looking forward to him being back in full training soon.”
