The England Under-21 International was hurt during their 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic last Friday, in which he scored their only goal.

A spokesman for Swansea City confirmed the 22-year-old is now expected to be out for between four and six weeks.

So far Carroll has made 18 appearances for the Swans, after joining them last summer on a season-long loan.

Elsewhere it's understood manager Garry Monk is awaiting results of a scan on winger Jefferson Montero, who reportedly suffered a muscle strain last weekend.

The Swans continue their Premier League campaign on Saturday, when they host Hull City.

Monk 'frustrated' at Swansea draw

Swansea City manager Garry Monk admits he was frustrated that his side didn't pick up all three points against Sunderland.

The Swans went a goal down to the visitors to the Liberty Stadium thanks to a first half Jermain Defoe strike.

But despite Ki Sung-yueng's equaliser after the break, Monk thought his side deserved more than a point.

We got a good equaliser from Ki and we tried to push to get the second but it just wasn't meant to be today and sometimes that happens. We had enough chances to score at least two or three goals today but it didn't want to go in the back of the net unfortunately.

– Garry Monk
