Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer is out for the season

13th February 2017

Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an Achilles injury.
Dyer was recalled to the starting line-up in the 2-0 win over Leicester City on Sunday, but limped off after just seven minutes.
A scan today revealed that the 29-year-old has ruptured the Achilles tendon in his left ankle.
It means Dyer, who won a Premier League medal on loan at Leicester last season, will have to undergo surgery in due course to cure the problem.



The news is a significant blow for boss Paul Clement, who has used Dyer regularly in recent weeks.
The former Southampton player has featured in five games since Clement was appointed last month.
With Dyer on the sidelines, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Wayne Routledge, Luciano Narsingh and Jordan Ayew are the Swans' options out wide.
Jefferson Montero should return to the reckoning at some stage, although he is currently recovering from a hamstring injury.
