Swansea City: Michel Vorm in race to be fit for Old Trafford
GERHARD Tremmel is on standby for a start at Manchester United this weekend as Michel Vorm battles to recover from his midweek collision with Ben Davies.
The good news for Swansea City is that tests yesterday showed that Vorm suffered no serious damage when he clashed heads with team-mate Davies during Tuesday's 3-2 win over Wigan.
The Dutch international was carried off with his neck in a brace after receiving extensive treatment, but it seems he has got away with a cut lip and badly bruised face.
However, Vorm faces a race to be fit for Sunday's glamour fixture with United, when the hosts will lift the Premier League trophy and Sir Alex Ferguson will say his Old Trafford goodbyes.
That means Tremmel, who has made 20 appearances already this season, could get the nod as Swansea look to deny Sir Alex's men victory for the second time this season having drawn with them at the Liberty in December.
There are further injury concerns for Michael Laudrup, with Ki Sung-Yueng also struggling with a dead leg. The South Korean international has been out for two games already. Swansea are more optimistic about the chances of Chico Flores playing a part even though he missed the Wigan victory with a combination of arm and calf injuries.
Roland Lamah, who has been absent with a hamstring problem, could also come back into contention, while Michu's season may not be over after all.
Laudrup ruled his top-scorer out until next term after he came off feeling his hamstring during Swansea's draw with Manchester City last Saturday.
But it seems Michu's problem is not as serious as initially feared, and that he may yet get some action before the campaign draws to a close.
Swansea, meanwhile, have been linked with a move for Spanish Under-20s midfielder Fede Vico. The 18-year-old plays in the Spanish second tier for Cordoba.
