Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says Neil Taylor is on the brink of a return.

The fullback has recovered from a horrific ankle injury suffered at the beginning of the season.

Laudrup said: "Physically he is quite close to being back.

"He has trained with us for some weeks, but we all know match fitness is a different level and only by coming back will he get that.

"The physical part is one thing, the mental part is another after a triple fracture, which is quite an injury.

"I am happy he's back and let's see when he can come in and make his comeback."
