The striker was stretchered off during the Swans’ last game against Tottenham Hotspur, after falling to the ground with no one around him, in scenes eerily reminiscent of Fabrice Muamba’s collapse at the same ground nearly three years ago. But Gomis quickly reassured fans that he simply fainted, something that has happened before in his career.

His boss has played down the severity of the incident ahead of the striker’s impending return.

“I understand there are questions people want answered but the issue is not as big for Bafé and the people at the club,” Monk said.

“He has lived with it his whole life, it happens occasionally and when it does so in a public place that scrutiny comes with it.”

Now fears for the 29-year-old’s health have been put to bed, fans will be looking forward to getting Gomis back in the side. Despite apparently wanting to leave the club in January, the sale of Wilfried Bony breathed new life into the former Lyon striker’s spell in South Wales. He has enjoyed a much longer run in the first team.

Gomis may have only managed five goals in all competitions – including the winner against Manchester United – this season, but the army of Swansea fans at the Liberty Stadium this weekend will just be pleased to see the French striker back playing after a turbulent ten days.
