Montero suffers thigh injury

Swansea City
Swansea City have confirmed midfielder Jefferson Montero has been ruled out for up to six weeks due to a thigh injury.

Swansea City have confirmed midfielder Jefferson Montero has been ruled out for up to six weeks due to a thigh injury.

The winger stayed with the Swans over the international break but he suffered the problem during training earlier this week.

Montero has featured in four of Swansea’s six Championship games so far and he played a crucial role off the bench during the win against Millwall.

He produced a similar display in the win over Sheffield United on the opening day of the season but Graham Potter will now be forced to look at other options.

Swansea take on Nottingham Forest this weekend and Bersant Celina and Daniel James will be expected to retain their places in the starting XI.
