The defender has been heavily linked with a move to Middlesbrough but they failed to match the £5million asking price and he could now be thrown into the action at the Liberty Stadium.

Maguire returned to training in midweek but Phelan has indicated he could keep him in cotton wool for the trip after Jake Livermore filled in confidently in central defence against Leicester.

Allan McGregor (back), Alex Bruce (Achilles), Moses Odubajo (knee) and Michael Dawson (knee) all remain on the long-term injury list.

Provisional squad: Jakupovic, Kuciak, Davies, Robertson, Livermore, Elmohamady, Maguire, Tymon, Bowen, Meyler, Huddlestone, Snodgrass, Clucas, Luer, Maloney, Clackstone, Hernandez, Diomande, Olley.
