Dyer suffers suspected break

Swansea winger Nathan Dyer has been taken to hospital after suffering a suspected fractured ankle in his side's match with Norwich.

Dyer opened the scoring in the 12th minute after lobbing John Ruddy but was carried off shortly before half-time at Carrow Road.

The 26-year-old sustained the injury to his right ankle during a hefty challenge from Sebastien Bassong.

Bassong clattered into the back of Dyer when challenging for a header and the Swansea player's ankle gave way on landing.

Dyer was administered oxygen and his leg put in a brace by medics on the pitch before he was stretchered off and taken to hospital for X-rays.

Both sets of supporters applauded the former Southampton trainee as he was carried away.
