The former Real Madrid man has missed the Swans' last two games with a dead leg but is expected to return at the Ricoh Arena.

Manager Paulo Sousa will be without a number of other players, though, with Joe Allen, Ferrie Bodde, Thomas Butler and Darren Pratley all out.

Allen has a hamstring injury, Bodde is a long-term absentee following knee surgery, Butler has a groin problem and Pratley a shoulder injury. None of the players are expected to return until September at the earliest.

The Swans go to Coventry in search of their first win of the season. They picked up their first point of the new campaign against Reading on Tuesday night.
