Michu facing six weeks on sidelines

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has confirmed that Michu is set for around six weeks on the sidelines as he requires ankle surgery.

Michu has scored two goals in 12 Premier League appearances this season.

Hicks: Small margins squeezing Swans

Michu, 27, has been suffering with ankle and knee problems this season and has struggled to replicate the form he showed upon his arrival from Rayo Vallecano in the summer of 2012.

Laudrup told the club’s official website that he will now go under the knife to correct his ankle problems and is set to be out until February.

“It’s not good news,” he said. “Unfortunately it has been confirmed that he will need an operation. The good news is that it can be done in the next week and he should be back playing in around a month and a half.”

Swansea have already lost Nathan Dyer for several weeks with ankle ligament damage and, as a result, Laudrup has said he will now look to add to his squad next month.

He said: “What has happened in the last couple of weeks has changed things. We will probably do something now in January and try to add something that we don't have in certain positions. The numbers are a bit down and that is risky for the last four months of the season.”

Swansea have been linked with Liverpool’s Iago Aspas, who has failed to make an impression at Anfield since his summer move from Celta Vigo, and Michu has already said he hopes to see his fellow Spaniard at the Liberty Stadium.

Asked about the subject, Laudrup said: “He is an interesting player, but he is at Liverpool. They have injuries as well, so that might not be possible, but we are looking at other options.

“A lot of clubs will do business and everyone needs players in certain positions. We just have to do our best and not talk about names.”

Meanwhile, Swansea defender Ben Davies has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract with the club.

“I’m very happy to have signed the new contract,” the Wales international told the club’s official website. “It wasn’t a difficult decision and it’s always great to sign a new deal and commit my future to the club.

“This is a great place to learn and improve and it’s nice to be rewarded for all the effort I’ve put in. I feel as though I’m getting better all the time and this is a good place to play football, especially with the style of play we have at the club.

“I think it’s the right place to be at in terms of my career, and if I’m playing regularly and I’m happy then that’s the main thing and all I can ask for.

“This is exactly what I would have wanted if I was to make it into the first team here, and fortunately I’ve been able to do just that. I’m very happy with how things have gone and it is great to get that reward for all the hard work over a period of time.”
