Kyle Bartley: Swansea City defender undergoes surgery
Swansea City defender Kyle Bartley's knee injury is worse than initially feared and he will be out of action for around three months.
The 26-year-old suffered medial ligament damage in their 4-1 EFL Cup win at MK Dons on 22 August and has had surgery.
The club originally expected Bartley to be out for two months, but the surgery means a longer recovery.
"The period of 12 weeks is an estimate," said manager Paul Clement.
"We will have to see how Kyle responds to his rehabilitation."
Bartley spent 2016-17 on loan at Leeds United, but featured in all three of Swansea's games this season before his setback.
