Swansea City fullback Neil Taylor has suffered a fresh injury setback.

Taylor faces another injury lay-off after being ruled out for up to six weeks with severe bruising to his thigh.

Swansea head physio Kate Rees said: "Neil picked up a slight dead leg in the Europa League game last Thursday but he was able to train on Friday and Saturday.

"However, the haematoma re-bled on Sunday and he was admitted to hospital as a precaution.

"While there is no serious muscle or tissue damage, he suffered severe swelling and bruising to his thigh which will take between four to six weeks to clear up."
