Midfield ace Ki Sung-yueng is winning his race to be fit for Swansea City’s clash with Newcastle United this weekend.

The Swans kingpin limped off just before half-time in the opening day draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge complaining of a hamstring strain.

He was replaced by Jack Cork against the defending Premier League champions with the club’s medical bosses confident the South Korean hadn’t suffered any long-lasting damage.

And it seems to be good news surrounding the former Celtic and Sunderland man, with Swansea boss Garry Monk confirming Ki is on the right path.

“It’s not a serious injury, he’s back on the field tomorrow,” said Monk.

“Whether it’s too soon for Saturday we’ll see. The scans are fine.”
