Viktor Gyokeres and Jordon Garrick have returned to training and are in contention for the weekend trip to Nottingham Forest.

The pair had been self-isolating following positive tests for Covid-19, but have completed those periods and returned to training on Friday.

The Swans are continuing to manage the fitness of Andre Ayew and Marc Guehi following their hamstring injuries, with the Ghanaian playing 45 minutes off the bench against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

“Viktor and Jordon have been back in today. They trained normally with the group. That’s a positive,” said head coach Steve Cooper.

“They’re available (for the weekend). We just have to be a bit careful. They missed 10 days of training and you don’t want to put too much on them.

“We’ll build them back up as we go along. Hopefully they’ll feature sooner rather than later.

“Marc and Andre are ongoing issues that we are having to manage. I know Andre contributed the other night, but it’s still something we have to be careful of going into the weekend and beyond that.

“We’re in decent shape really in terms of player availability.”

Cooper also confirmed that George Byers is back in full training following a setback in his recovery from a groin problem, while Morgan Gibbs-White is also making good progress in his recovery from a fractured foot.
