LONDON (Reuters) - Swansea City’s Premier League survival hopes were dealt a blow on Monday with the news that Nathan Dyer has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an Achilles injury.

Dyer was recalled to the starting line-up for Swansea’s 2-0 win over Leicester City on Sunday, but lasted less than 10 minutes before limping off.

A scan on Monday revealed that the 29-year-old winger had ruptured the Achilles tendon in his left ankle.

Former Southampton forward Dyer has featured in five games since Paul Clement was appointed Swansea manager last month.
