Carlos Carvalhal expects Renato Sanches to rejoin Swansea’s Premier League survival battle this month after returning to his native Portugal to recover from injury.
Renato Sanches has not featured for Swansea since damaging a hamstring in an FA Cup fourth-round tie against Notts County on January 27.
The on-loan Bayern Munich midfielder lasted only 32 minutes at Meadow Lane after suffering a similar injury in the previous round at Wolves three weeks earlier.
“I believe Renato will be available to start training and be ready this month,” Carvalhal said ahead of Saturday’s league trip to Huddersfield.
“He has missed a lot of weeks to be in a normal physical condition. It will take a bit of time for him to try and help the team but I believe he will be ready to be involved in the 18.”
