Swansea City and Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero given all-clear to play in the Premier League against Everton
10th November 2016
Swansea City's flying winger Jefferson Montero has been given the all-clear to continue playing with a protective cast on his broken hand.
Montero fractured a bone in his left hand in a fall against Manchester United last weekend and returned from international duty with Ecuador following x-ray confirmation of the break.
It was feared that Montero would be forced to undergo surgery and a lengthy absence on the sidelines. But having seen a specialist yesterday, he was given the go ahead to continue training and playing in a cast.
It's a major boost for Swans boss Bob Bradley, who only saw Montero return to action last Sunday following a lengthy absence through injury (calf).
