Graham Potter has revealed that Swansea City skipper Leroy Fer has suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from injury. The captain hasn't featured since limping off against Birmingham City at the end of the last month. It had been hoped that the Dutchman would return in February, but the boss confirmed that would not happen. Potter said: "Leroy was getting close but had a little bit of a setback so slightly disappointing for us there. "Not too serious but it puts him back for the weekend definitely.

Volkswagen could build up to 50 million electric cars on its new electric vehicle platform and is looking at expanding its manufacturing footprint in the United States, Chief Executive Herbert Diess told Automotive News. "We set up the plant in Chattanooga always with the idea to be able to grow it, to mirror it," Diess was quoted as saying.
