Francisco de Miguel Moreno has given an injury update ahead of Newcastle United's visit to the Liberty Stadium.

Defensive pair Florian Lejeune and DeAndre Yedlin are set to return to the squad for Sunday's game against Swansea City.

And striker Dwight Gayle, not involved against West Ham United before the international break, will be involved.

“I think Dwight will be involved in part of the squad," said Moreno, United's fitness coach.

"He has trained very well. We are very happy in the way he is doing things in the last few days.

"DeAndre is working very well, hard to get to the game. He has trained very well in the last few days. Lejeune as well.

"They are both in the same situation. We normally wait until the end to make a decision. They are progressing well with the team.

"Hopefully, he can be involved with the squad."

Meanwhile, defender Chancel Mbemba suffered a hamstring injury playing for DR Congo during the international break.

"Chancel is not too bad," said Moreno. "Reading the newspaper, it seems like it was a bad injury.

"Today we don’t think so. The assessment is quite good.

"He'll definitely miss the game, but hopefully not too bad. Hopefully, he'll be ready for the next one (against Stoke City on September 16)."
