Skipper Williams, full-back Taylor and Sigurdsson all missed last weekend’s 4-1 win at West Ham, and Poland goalkeeper Fabianski now joins them in getting a breather ahead of this summer’s European Championships in France.

As a result, Sweden goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt will make his Premier League debut in a Swansea side also set to be without Jefferson Montero and Alberto Paloschi, who are both out with hamstring strains again.

Boss Francesco Guidolin could give some other fringe and youth players a place in his matchday squad as the Italian has already begun planning for next season after it was confirmed this week that he would be staying on at the Liberty Stadium. Guidoilin has been identifying potential new signings and is working closely with chairman Huw Jenkins on transfer targets.

Guidolin has already told chairman Huw Jenkins the type of player he wants this summer, but admits the final decision rests with the club.

“I speak about the characteristics of new players, then the decision is down to the chairman and the club,” said the former Parma and Udinese boss.

“The chairman deals with the money. I can say something, the chairman might have another opinion. But there is a good communications between us, there is a relationship with the chairman.”
