Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer is available to face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Saturday, 14 October after eight months out.

The 29-year-old ruptured his Achilles tendon in February 2017 during the 2-0 win over Leicester City.

Dyer has not played for the first team since but has been regaining match fitness with Swansea Under-23s.

"Nathan is available for selection now," said Swansea manager Paul Clement.

"He has played two games for the Under-23s and he is training well.

"It has got to the point now where he can be considered for action."

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Gregor Zabret has signed a two-year contract extension with the Swans.

The 22-year-old Slovenian joined the Welsh club from NK Domzale in July 2013.
