Swansea City can confirm striker Fernando Llorente has fractured a bone in his lower arm.

The 32-year-old suffered the accident while cycling on a family holiday, and despite it not being a serious break that requires an operation, it does mean the club will have to tailor his pre-season training accordingly.

The club remain optimistic that he will be available for selection for the first game of the Premier League season against Southampton on Saturday, August 12.
