Bartley out for three months

Swansea City defender Kyle Bartley has been ruled out for three months with a thigh injury.

The northern summer recruit from Arsenal suffered his setback in training last month, the club confirmed, and after tests it has emerged he faces a long lay-off.

Bartley, 21, made his Swansea debut in the 3-1 Capital One Cup win over Barnsley on 28 August but has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the club.

A Swansea spokesman told Press Association Sport that Bartley has a ruptured quad muscle.
