Montero In Contention vs Hull Despite Injury

Montero In Contention vs Hull Despite Injury
Jefferson Montero is in contention for Saturday's game against Hull despite returning from international duty with a hamstring injury.

The winger suffered the injury during Ecuador's 1-0 defeat against Mexico but fortunately for Swansea City, the hamstring problem is not as bad as initially thought.

Monk told BBC Sport today that he will be assessed on Friday to see if he is fit to feature in the matchday squad to face Hull City this weekend at the Liberty Stadium.

'He came back today and it's not as serious as reports said,'

'He had an assessment today but he'll have a proper assessment tomorrow [Friday] to see whether he's available for the weekend.

'But it's not as serious as first feared.'

Leon Britton and Kyle Bartley are back in training and available for selection, which could leave loanee Tom Carroll the only sidelined player, as he could miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ankle injury whilst playing for the England under-21s.

Monk added:

'The injury that he has is just around his ankle, top of his foot,'

'He's had it for a few weeks. He's played with it, he's managed it.

'We have to assess it really over the coming weeks whether it's long term or whether it's four weeks, six weeks, eight weeks, twelve weeks or if it's just a couple of weeks.'
