Swansea defender Martin Olsson has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on an Achilles injury.

The Sweden international ruptured his left Achilles in Saturday's 3-2 Sky Bet Championship win at Brentford, which lifted Swansea up to 12th in the table.

Olsson has played 17 league games for the Swans this term and has been a virtual ever-present since joining the club from Norwich in 2017.

His injury is similar to the one sustained by Swansea team-mates Leroy Fer and Nathan Dyer last season.
