Swansea boss Laudrup welcomes back Chico Flores

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says defender Chico Flores is nearing a return.

Defender Flores has been sidelined for seven weeks after rupturing ankle ligaments in last month's win over QPR, and missed the Capital One Cup final success as a result.

But the Spaniard has returned to training and manager Michael Laudrup is upbeat on his chances of playing a part on Saturday.

Laudrup said: "Chico is looking good. He is still feeling something when he does some movements, but that is completely normal for this type of injury.

"He has a possibility of being in the line-up and we will just need to see how he is on Friday."
