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."
