Surgery a success for Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer
16th February 2017
Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer has undergone successful surgery on his ruptured Achilles.
Dyer went under the knife in London to repair his Achilles tendon after he limped out of last weekend's 2-0 win over Leicester City.
The 29-year-old has been ruled out for the remainder of this season with the injury, but he will soon start working towards a first-team comeback.
"Nathan is doing okay," said Swans performance director Richard Buchanan.
"When the injury happened, he said he felt like somebody had caught him on the back of his foot.
"In actual fact the injury was not the result of contact, but that is a classic case with this problem.
"He has had an operation to repair the Achilles tendon. He will now have a period of rest before he commences a carefully monitored period of rehabilitation."
