Sanches and Bony boost for Swans

The Swans have been given a double boost with both Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches available for next week’s clash with Burnley.

Summer signing Bony hasn’t featured since the defeat at West Ham at the end of September after suffering two different hamstring injuries.

Portuguese international Sanches, meanwhile, has been sidelined since the league loss to Leicester three weeks ago after sustaining a thigh problem.

But both are back in full training, with Clement keen to see the pair back in action as the Swans visit Turf Moor next Saturday.

“Both Wilfried and Renato will be available for selection for Burnley,” confirmed Clement. “It is good to have them back as they are players that can bring a lot to the quality of the squad.

“We will, as it stands, go into this game with virtually a fully-fit squad.”

Kyle Bartley is the only member of Clement’s squad who is unavailable, with the centre-back not featuring since injuring his knee during the Carabao Cup win over MK Dons in August.

Leon Britton and Angel Rangel were both involved in training this week as they hope to feature after missing the defeat to Brighton last time out.

Martin Olsson, meanwhile, is currently on international duty with Sweden after overcoming the hamstring injury which saw him miss last weekend’s clash with the Seagulls at the Liberty.
