Routledge had season-ending ankle surgery this week, Wales Online reports.

The issue has reportedly been bothering Routledge for a number of weeks, and with Swansea well out of the relegation zone and not in European contention, it's the perfect time for the procedure so that he's fully recovered for next season. Modou Barrow was recalled from his loan at Nottingham Forest to help fill the void for the remaining five games.
