Swansea Dealt Huge Blow As Bony And Fer Ruled Out For The Season

Carlos Carvalhal had given Swansea City hope where previously there was none to stay in the Premier League this season. Now the Welsh side have been dealt a double blow with two of their biggest players ruled out for the season.

In December Swansea City were in a lot of trouble at the bottom of the Premier League with no real hope of turning things around. Even in a season where the relegation battle is intense they looked cut adrift already.

Carlos Carvalhal was sacked by Championship Sheffield Wednesday but was the man named to replace Paul Clement in the south of Wales and the 52 year old has quickly turned things around, winning 11 points and taking them out of the relegation zone.

There's still a lot of work to be done as they are currently only clear on goal difference, ahead of Stoke and Huddersfield by eight and nine goals respectively, in the tightest relegation battle possibly ever.

But today, less than 24 hours after picking up a helpful away point against Leicester, the Swans have been dealt a huge blow with Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony out injured till the end of the season. A club statement read:

"Fer was stretchered off in the first half of the Swans' 1-1 draw at Leicester City on Saturday after going down unchallenged. A scan confirmed the Dutch midfielder had ruptured his Achilles and he is now expected to undergo surgery.

"The same fate also awaits Bony after a scan revealed the striker had torn his anterior cruciate ligament. The Ivory Coast international suffered the knee injury when he landed awkwardly just moments after coming on as a second-half substitute at the King Power Stadium.

"Despite battling on to help secure the Swans a precious point in their survival fight, Bony left the stadium in a knee brace."

The timing for Swansea couldn't really be worse coming at the time in the season that gives them the most amount of times and games without being able to dip into the transfer window.

We wish both players a speedy recovery.
