Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has revealed fullback Neil Taylor could see action before the end of the season.

Taylor is close to a return and could even figure in a couple of games before the end of the season, having taken tentative steps in the reserves.

"There's a physical part to a comeback from an injury of seven months, like lack of match fitness, but also a psychological factor from such a bad injury too," said Laudrup.

"So it's step by step and we'll have to see every week where he is. Maybe he'll play a little more in the next reserve game and we'll take it from there.

"In training you can control a lot of movements, but in a game you cannot. There will be different moments he has to go through and overcome.

"But I won't put pressure on him. It will take the time it has to take."
