Swansea's Owain Tudur-Jones is expected to be out for four months following knee surgery.
Swansea City midfielder Owain Tudur-Jones has undergone knee surgery, and is expected to be out of action for four months.
The 21-year-old Welshman was called up by international coach John Toshack for friendlies against Trinidad & Tobago and Basque Country at the end of May, but now looks likely to be out until October.
The injury comes as a crushing blow to manager Kenny Jackett with fellow midfielder Darren Way also set to miss the start of the season with a leg problem.
"Owain went in for a routine exploratory operation, but the specialist was not happy with what he found," Jackett told the club's website.
"Owain had to undergo micro-surgery, which could keep him out for four months.
"It is obviously a big blow, especially with Darren Way also going in for an operation on his stress fracture problem."
Tudur-Jones made 24 League One appearances for the club last season, chipping in with three goals, and The Swans will be anxious to regain his services as they seek to win their way into The Championship next year.
