Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer ruled out for two months
15th September 2016
Swans winger Nathan Dyer has been ruled out for up to two months with an ankle injury.
Dyer, who recently signed a new four-year contract, is set to go under the surgeon's scalpel on Monday to remove extra bone growth in his ankle.
"I am bitterly disappointed," confirmed Dyer, who has been able to train this week despite the ankle problem.
"I was feeling good after completing pre-season training and being involved in the friendlies and the first three games of the campaign.
"I started to feel some pain in my ankle after returning from the training camp in America. I saw a specialist last week and the MRI scan revealed the extra bone growth at the back of my ankle.
"There is not a lot I can do about it, but I am determined to work even harder after my operation to play my part for the team on my return."
Meanwhile, Swedish-born centre-back Sotiris Papagiannopoulos will spend the next few days training with the Swans.
The 26-year-old, who is contracted to Swedish club Ostersunds FK, trained for the first time yesterday (Wednesday).
The Swans have had a long-standing relationship with Ostersunds since the days of manager Roberto Martinez and snapped up Modou Barrow from them in 2014.
