Swansea defender Alfie Mawson has undergone knee surgery to leave his England World Cup hopes in jeopardy.

Mawson had an operation after Swansea’s relegation from the Premier League was confirmed by Sunday’s 2-1 home defeat to Stoke.

Swansea are waiting to discover the full extent of the injury but it is feared that Mawson will be out until the start of next season.

The England Under-21 international won a first call-up to the senior squad for the friendlies with Holland and Italy in March, but has still to win his first cap.
