Bodde Out For The Whole Season
He suffered a knee injury in November 2008 and he made his first League start on Saturday at home to Sheffield United, but he lasted just 8 minutes after suffering a recurrence of the injury that's kept him on the sidelines for so long.
It's a huge disappointment for the player and the club as we were looking forward to welcoming the Dutchman back to the team.
Regarded as one of the best talents in Paulo Sousa's squad, he came close to leaving in the Summer with Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic making bids for the 27 year-old.
Chairman Huw Jenkins said:
'It's a big blow, not just for the football club but, more importantly, for Ferrie himself.
'He is devastated at the moment. But as a club we have told him we will look after him and stand by him every step of the way - as we did last time.
'He will remain a very important member of this football club. We all feel for him, and I'm sure every Swans fan will join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.''
