Swansea defender Alfie Mawson has undergone knee surgery to leave his World Cup hopes in jeopardy.

Mawson had an operation after Swansea's relegation from the Premier League was confirmed by Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to Stoke.

Swansea are waiting to discover the full extent of the injury but it is feared that Mawson will be out until the start of next season.

The England Under-21 international won a first call-up to the senior squad for the friendlies with Holland and Italy in March, but has still to win his first cap.

Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal has explained why Renato Sanches has been training in his native Portugal.

The Portugal midfielder has not played since suffering a hamstring injury in the FA Cup fourth-round tie against Notts County at the end of January.

Carvalhal, speaking ahead of Saturday's Premier League trip to Huddersfield, said: "He requested to go to Portugal and the warm weather can help with his muscular problem, he will be ready to help the team this month."
