Swansea City have been dealt a double injury blow with Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony both ruled out for the rest of the Premier League season.

Fer was stretchered off in the first half of the Swans’ 1-1 draw at Leicester City on Saturday after going down unchallenged.

A scan confirmed the Dutch midfielder had ruptured his Achilles and he is now expected to undergo surgery.

The same fate also awaits Bony after a scan revealed the striker had torn his anterior cruciate ligament.

The Ivory Coast international suffered the knee injury when he landed awkwardly just moments after coming on as a second-half substitute at the King Power Stadium.

Despite battling on to help secure the Swans a precious point in their survival fight, Bony left the stadium in a knee brace.

Both players will be assessed further in the week and an update will follow.

Everyone at the Swans wishes both players speedy recoveries.
