No Jeff concerns for Potter

Swansea City expect Jefferson Montero to be fit for Saturday’s clash with Norwich City after the winger’s flying visit to South America.

Montero joined up with Ecuador last week having only just returned from a lengthy injury lay-off.

The 29-year-old made his first Swans appearance in more than two months when he came on as a late substitute in the win at Bolton 10 days ago.

Montero then started for Ecuador as they faced Peru last Friday only to be substituted after 36 minutes of the game.

But Swans boss Graham Potter insists there are no fresh injury concerns over the wideman.

“The plan was for Jeff to play around half an hour of the Ecuador game, whether it was from the start or as a substitute,” Potter said.

“There are no reports of any problems so we are looking forward to seeing him come back on Thursday with the rest of the guys.

“It will be good for Jeff that he has got some time on the pitch in a competitive game under his belt.”

Ecuador are in action again when they take on Panama in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
