SWANSEA, Wales (AP) — Swansea players Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony have been ruled out for the remainder of the season because of injury, a blow to the Welsh team’s chances of staying in the Premier League.

Midfielder Fer has a ruptured Achilles tendon and striker Bony sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Both were hurt in Swansea’s 1-1 draw at Leicester on Saturday.

Swansea said Sunday that both players are set to undergo surgery.

The team is 17th in the 20-team Premier League, only out of the relegation zone on goal difference.
