Swans star won't play until 2011

Published Add your comment

Swansea winger Tom Butler will not play again in 2010 after undergoing a thigh operation.

The 29-year-old, who is yet to feature for new manager Brendan Rodgers, has been forced to go under the knife to repair a torn muscle and will not return until the new year.

Butler told the club's official website: "It's disappointing. The operation was the only option for me because the muscle needed to be stitched back together."

He added: "It's going to be a long road back but I am determined to get there and play a part in the second half of the campaign."
