Swansea City midfielder Leroy Fer is set to miss the next two games of the season with a groin injury, having limped off away to Millwall 12 days ago.
The Dutchman has been making good progress, according to manager Graham Potter, but will not feature against Nottingham Forest this weekend or against Stoke City the following Tuesday night.

“Leroy is making really good progress but the Forest game will be too soon for him,” Potter told the club’s official website.
“That’s disappointing of course, but he is working well and we are looking towards the Middlesbrough game for him.”
Fer moved to the Welsh club in the summer of 2016 after he had spent the second-half of the previous season on loan from QPR.
He has since gone on to make 79 appearances for the club, scoring nine goals in that time. He has predominantly been used as a substitute this season although did start, and captain the side, against Leeds United and Millwall.
Graham Potter’s side have had a decent start to their first season back in the Championship and currently sit seventh in the league with 11 points.
This is a blow for the Swans but with Martin Olsson, Oli Joe Rodon and Oli McBurnie all returning to full fitness, the good news probably outweighs the bad here.
Graham Potter has done an excellent job so far with limited resources so I do not expect an injury to one more player to impact the club too much on Saturday.
