Swansea City goalkeeper Erwin Mulder is set to miss the rest of the season, while captain Leroy Fer is still some way off a return to action.

Mulder has made 27 appearances in 2018-19 but his campaign looks to be over after he broke a finger in training.

Steven Benda, a 20-year-old German, will be promoted to the first-team squad alongside Kristoffer Nordfeldt.

Midfielder Fer, meantime, remains on the sidelines with the hamstring injury he suffered at the end of January.

"We've had a problem with Erwin in the week. He's broken a finger so he's probably out for the rest of the season," said Swansea boss Graham Potter.

"It's a blow for us and it's unfortunate for Erwin, but we've got Kris and Steven. They're the two that we have for the foreseeable future."

As for Fer, Potter added: "I wouldn't want to put a timescale on it.

"He is having a scan tomorrow [Friday] and then we will have to go through the right protocols. It will still be a few weeks I would say."
