Premier League team news

Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong will be fit for the Canaries' Barclays Premier League clash at Swansea tomorrow.

The 26-year-old looked to be struggling towards the closing stages of the 2-1 win over Sunderland but Norwich boss Chris Hughton has revealed the centre-half is available for selection.

England goalkeeper John Ruddy has undergone a thigh operation and faces up to three months out while defender Michael Turner (shoulder) and on-loan striker Harry Kane (metatarsal) are also missing.

Provisional squad: Bunn, Rudd, Whittaker, Garrido, R Bennett, Bassong, Barnett, Tierney, Martin, Tettey, Howson, Johnson, Hoolahan, E Bennett, Pilkington, Surman, Snodgrass, Jackson, Holt, Morison.
