Swansea fullback Naughton out for season

Swansea City fullback Kyle Naughton has been ruled out for the season.

Naughton has been ruled out for the rest of the season with ankle ligament damage.

He was hurt during Swansea's 3-1 Barclays Premier League home victory over Hull on Saturday in a challenge which saw Tigers midfielder David Meyler shown a straight red card.

A statement on the official Swansea website said a second scan confirmed ligament damage that will keep the January signing from Spurs out for around six weeks.

"An initial scan ruled out a fracture but a follow-up scan confirmed ligament damage," said the club statement.
