Jonjo Shelvey: Linked with move to Palace and Newcastle

Swansea City have won their last three Premier League games against Leicester City at the Liberty Stadium, but the sides are in contrasting form.

Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is available again after a suspension, but Franck Tabanou will be unavailable for several weeks after injuring a thigh muscle in training.

Leicester will be without Ritchie de Laet for around a month due to an ankle injury, while Nathan Dyer is ineligible against his parent club. Matty James is closing on a return but will not feature this weekend.
