Swansea City look set to receive a welcome boost when they return to League action in just over a week’s time as record signing Borja Baston is expected to be fit and available when they host Chelsea on Sunday 11th September.

The striker has yet to make his debut for the Swans since his £15.5m Summer move from Atletico Madrid, but he’s expected to at least make the bench when the Blues visit the Liberty Stadium.

It’ll be a welcome boost for Guidolin and his team, as they’ve so far missed an alternative forward option to fellow Spaniard Fernando Llorente. Youngster Oliver McBurnie was only included in the matchday squad at Leicester after scoring a brace in the 3-1 Cup win at Peterborough United.

Guidolin told the official site:

“Borja has stepped up his recovery and has now rejoined the full group on the training field,”

“He is progressing well and if things continue as they are I am confident he will be available for selection for the visit of Chelsea.“
