Emmanuel Frimpong underwent surgery to his right knee on Wednesday night following an injury sustained in Fulham’s Premier League match at Swansea City on Sunday.

The 21-year-old Ghanaian international, who appeared twice for the Arsenal first team this season - in the Capital One Cup victories over Coventry City and Reading - had been on loan with Fulham since January, following a six-week loan spell at Championship side Charlton Athletic.

Frimpong will now begin his rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in around two months’ time.

We wish Manny the best of luck in his recovery.
