(Reuters) - Swansea City are concerned about defender Mike van der Hoorn after the Dutchman sustained a shoulder injury in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old, who has featured in Swansea’s last 11 league games, was substituted at half-time. Swansea earned a crucial point to move four points clear of 18th-placed Southampton, who play Arsenal later on Sunday.

"It was Mike's shoulder – we don't know yet what the problem is," manager Carlos Carvalhal told Swansea's website www.swanseacity.com.

“He cannot move his arm at the moment, but let’s see if things get better.”

Swansea have six league games left to play and a serious injury would rule Van der Hoorn out for the rest of the season.

The Welsh side host ninth-placed Everton in the league next Saturday.
