Ki's keen to impress

Ki Sung-Yueng is hoping for more chances to impress Swans boss Paul Clement following a frustrating few months interrupted by injury.

The South Korea skipper made his first appearance of the season last weekend after coming on as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 home win over Huddersfield Town.

The midfielder’s start to the season was delayed after picking up an injury while on international duty in the summer.

Knee surgery in June meant Ki was in the physio room rather than battling for a place within Clement’s plans.

But his 18-minute cameo last weekend, which saw him go within inches of adding a third goal for the Swans, has moved him closer to full fitness ahead of this Saturday’s home clash with Leicester City.

“It has been a frustrating summer but I am very pleased to be back,” said the 28-year-old.

“I have had a few months out. I am still not 100 per cent but I feel I am progressing well.

“I hope for more chances to help the team and show what I can do.

“It was great to play in front of the fans at the Liberty Stadium – I’d love to follow that up with more involvement this weekend and three points to show too.”
