The Dutchman has been sidelined with a calf injury for two months, but only now has he revealed how the injury was sustained.

"It was bad - I am lucky to be alive," Agustien he told the Western Mail.

"I was back home in Holland and driving my car but for no reason it slipped and hit a ditch. The car went into a cornfield and flipped over a couple of times.

"It went over twice so my head was pretty shaken up. The car was gone - I was so lucky it was only a calf tear.

"And I've been saying my prayers ever since. I thank God every day anyway but I had my angel with me when it happened.

"It could have been worse but it is in the past now and I want to concentrate on my future and to be ready when I get my chance with the team."

Agustien is hoping he can make his return to action this weekend against Newcastle and he may get his chance with Ki Sung-yueng injured.

"I am hoping to start at Newcastle," he said.

"I've been working hard, making sure if I get chance to get on the pitch I am ready to show what I can do.

"I had five minutes at a difficult time at Southampton but I think I did well in the position I played and in the small amount of time, so hopefully that can help.

"Everybody knows what my qualities are and I think I should be playing - that's my opinion and everybody would say that about themselves. But I think I should be playing so I need to let my feet speak for me.

"Because when you get an opportunity you have to make an impact because there are lot of midfield players here and a lot of midfield players who are doing well.

"Of course I want to play but Swansea is not about me. There are a full squad of players who want to play and perhaps think they should play. All I can do is work hard and if I get that chance then take it. That's what we all have to do, I'm no different. If it comes on Saturday then great, if not then I will keep working hard."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
