Swansea City midfielder and South Korea captain Ki faces spell on sidelines with broken toe
23rd November 2016
Swansea City's Ki Sung-Yueng faces a spell on the sidelines after breaking his toe.
The midfielder is expected to be out of action for around two weeks after suffering a fracture in the third toe of his right foot.
The loss of Ki is a setback for Swans boss Bob Bradley, who has used the South Korean star - either from the start or the substitutes' bench - in all five Premier League games since he took charge last month.
Ki came off the bench in the last few minutes at Everton last weekend. He had been omitted from the starting line-up having been away on international duty in his homeland. He didn't return until Thursday and only trained on Friday.
Jay Fulton, Jack Cork and Leroy Fer began in midfield as the Swans claimed a creditable draw at Goodison Park.
Club skipper Leon Britton missed out on the trip to Merseyside with a tight calf, but he is on course to return to the squad for this Saturday's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.
