Swansea City manager, Paul Clement has given an injury update for his squad saying Wilfred Bony is closer to a return to actions than ever thought.
The Swans play host to Brighton on Saturday as both sides will be at a loggerhead in the EPL.
“Wilfried Bony is close,” he said. “I would rate him at 50/50 to be involved in the squad.
“The time that he’s missed, and with this being his second injury, we don’t want to risk it too much. But also we want him back as quickly as possible.
“A lot of responsibility is on Tammy’s shoulders at the moment. We need other players to help. With Wilfried in the team we have a better opportunity of doing that.”
Brighton are making steady progress in their first Premier League campaign, sitting in 12th place on 12 points, having scored three times in beating both West Brom and West Ham.
Following last weekend’s 1-1 draw with fellow south coast outfit Southampton they travel to Swansea on Saturday and Chris Hughton hopes to improve his side’s last outing.
