Swans suffer Olsson blow

Swansea City have been hit by the news that Martin Olsson will miss the rest of the season.

The left-back suffered a ruptured left Achilles at Brentford last weekend.

He has had successful surgery, but now begins a long rehabilitation process and will not play again in 2018-19.

The loss of Olsson is a major blow for Swans boss Graham Potter.

The Swedish international is one of the senior professionals in Potter’s squad and has been consistent performer for the Swans since joining from Norwich back in January 2017.

He has the same injury which kept Leroy Fer out from February to August this year, and which sidelined Nathan Dyer between February and October 2017.
