Swansea defender Angel Rangel will miss the rest of the season after fracturing a metatarsal in his right foot in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Hull City.

After a scan on Sunday, the club said he will be out for eight to 12 weeks and will have an operation this week.

Right back Rangel, 34, had to be replaced by Jordi Amat after just 33 minutes at the KCOM Stadium.

The defeat, the Swans' 17th in the Premier League this season, left them three points clear of the drop zone.
