Swansea receive significant squad boost ahead of busy weekend



Swansea City have received a much-needed boost with the news that club captain Leroy Fer has returned to full training after a lengthy spell on the sidelines. 

The midfielder suffered a hamstring injury in the club’s 3-3 draw with Birmingham City over two-and-a-half months ago but is finally ready to return to Graham Potter’s sessions.

The Swans confirmed on their official website that Fer was initially set to return at the end of February but suffered a set-back which kept him out for another two months.

But scans have now confirmed that the Dutchman is free to return to training and is in contention to play over the Easter weekend.

On Friday, Potter welcomes Paul Warne and his relegation-threatened Rotherham United side to the Liberty Stadium before travelling to already relegated Ipswich Town on Easter Monday.

The South-Wales side currently sit in 12th place on 56 points but with nine points between them and the play-offs and five matches still left to play they will not have given up hope on promotion just yet.

The verdict

This is obviously great news for Potter and the club.

Fer has not been as affective on the pitch as many fans will have liked but his presence on the pitch is an important one, especially in such a young side.
