Cape Town - Swansea's French striker Bafetimbi Gomis has been ruled out for between three to four weeks with a hamstring injury, reports the club'swebsite.
It’s a bitter blow for the Swans and Gomis with the Frenchman hitting goalscoring form in recent weeks following Wilfried Bony’s departure to Manchester City.
Gomis limped off after just 17 minutes of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton at the Liberty Stadium having scored three times in the previous two games.
Scans this week revealed a grade two hamstring strain which will keep the French international sidelined for around three to four weeks.
It means boss Garry Monk will have to shuffle his pack for the trip to Leicester City on Saturday with regular left-back Neil Taylor also starting a two-match ban for the accumulation of ten bookings.
There was some good news for Monk though with striker Nelson Oliviera (ankle) and flying winger Jefferson Montero (hamstring) both returning to training this week following injury.
