Pintado was injured in the first game of the season at Hull

Swansea City striker Gorka Pintado has undergone a shoulder operation that is set to sideline him for up to three months.

The Spaniard, 32, suffered the damage in the opening game of the season, a 2-0 defeat at Hull City.

"The operation to stabilise the shoulder was a success," Swans physio Kate Rees told the club website.

"It's only early days, but the rehabilitation process is likely to take up to 12 weeks."
