Swansea City’s on-loan midfielder Tom Carroll is out for the rest of the season, after picking up an ankle injury in England U21’s 1-0 win against Czech Republic last week, reports BBC
The Tottenham youngster netted the only goal of the game, but picked up the injury from scoring it. He could now be out of action for up to six weeks, which would effectively cut his season short. It will be a big blow, as Carroll has impressed for Garry Monk’s side this campaign, and was an important component in the team. His fine form spilled over into his international performances too, but the setback now means he faces a race to be fit in time to represent the Three Lions in this summer’s European Championships.
As Tom Carroll is due to return to Tottenham at the end of the season, he’s likely played his last game for Swansea City. Despite having such stiff competition in the side, the Spurs man forced his way into the reckoning, and has shown real promise in the City midfield. He was the England U21 captain, so is likely to make the squad if he can prove his fitness in time.
