Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer will miss the rest of the season due to a ruptured Achilles, the Welsh club has confirmed.
Dyer lasted just seven minutes of the Swans' 2-0 victory over Leicester City – where he made 12 loan appearances during last season's Premier League title win – on Sunday.
And scans revealed that he suffered serious damage to his left Achilles tendon, ruling him out for the remainder of the season.
The news comes as a huge blow to a struggling Swansea side who are still not yet free from a relegation dogfight.

The 29-year-old signed a new four-year contract with the club in August.
