The full-back suffered the injury in last week's 5-1 Europa League play-off first-leg win over Romanian side Petrolul Ploiesti but he was able to train on Thursday and Friday.

However, the injury flared up again and Taylor was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Swansea head physio Kate Rees said: "Neil picked up a slight dead leg in the Europa League game last Thursday but he was able to train on Friday and Saturday.

"However, the haematoma re-bled on Sunday and he was admitted to hospital as a precaution.

"While there is no serious muscle or tissue damage, he suffered severe swelling and bruising to his thigh which will take between four to six weeks to clear up."

It means the left-back will now miss the return tie in Romania and is likely to miss out in Premier League games against West Brom, Liverpool and Crystal Palace, as well as Wales' next two World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Serbia.

Nathan Dyer will also miss the tie in Romania on Thursday as he continues to struggle with a hamstring injury.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
