Byers sends message to Swansea fans after recent injury blow



Swansea City midfielder George Byers has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Byers, 23, has enjoyed a good season in the Swansea midfield – the Scot had played 29 times in the Championship before limping off against Derby County last weekend, finding the net twice this season.

He was initially thought to have suffered a nasty sprain to his ankle but in his latest Instagram post, Byers has revealed that he’s suffered a tear in his ankle ligaments:

Plenty of Swansea fans are gutted to see him ruled out and for such a long time, especially after being such an important part of Steve Cooper’s set-up.

He’d been partnering Conor Gallagher in midfield since the Chelsea man’s arrival on-loan, and the pair were looking good in the heart of the Swansea side.

Cooper has spoke out about the injury, and has identified Joe Rodon as a ‘role-model’ for Byers – Rodon has recently returned to the first-team after a few months on the sideline, and has slipped seamlessly back into the starting line-up.

The Swans boss has urged Byers to confide in Rodon and to follow his example as he looks to return at the start of next season.

Which current Swansea player has 26 appearances for Charlton?

Swansea sit 10th in the Championship table, six points off Preston in 6th. Byers will be a huge miss as Swansea look to snatch a top-six spot and replacing him won’t be easy.

But Cooper has some talented players at his disposal, and maybe Byers’ absence will allow a youngster the chance to impress.
