Swansea City will not recall loanees despite defensive worries

Swansea City are poised to rearrange their defence against Leicester on Saturday after deciding not to recall any of their defenders out on loan.

Neil Taylor's suspension and Kyle Naughton's injury leaves Angel Rangel as the Swans' only available full-back.

But manager Garry Monk will not recall Dwight Tiendalli at Middlesbrough, Jazz Richards at Fulham or Stephen Kingsley at Yeovil.

"I feel we have enough in the squad," said Monk.

"We have a couple of things we've worked on this week to hopefully combat that."

Swansea had considered recalling their loaned-out trio after Taylor received his 10th yellow card of the season during the 1-1 draw against Everton, resulting in a two-match ban.

But Monk is now considering a potential change in formation or possibly playing some players out of position.

He is also mindful of not disrupting the loan spells of Tiendalli, Richards and Kingsley.

"He's [Kingsley] still a little bit short in terms of being ready for the Premier League but he's working very well," added Monk.

"Jazz is the same. I felt he needed to go out on loan, get some relevant experience and I don't want to disrupt that.

"Dwight has gone recently so it would be the wrong thing for me to recall them, so I won't recall any of the three."
