Here's the latest from our medical team following our match against Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
Read on to find out more:
Left knee. Kieran felt discomfort after a training session on Thursday, March 31. Further assessments and scans have confirmed that Kieran has damaged his left knee.
A specialist consultation took place on Tuesday, and as a result of further discussions with Kieran and our medical team, it has been decided that Kieran requires surgery to his knee. This procedure will take place in London in the forthcoming days.
Kieran’s rehabilitation programme will start immediately after his surgery, at which stage a clearer understanding will be established on his recovery timescale. However, it is likely that Kieran will now miss the remainder of this season.
Everyone at the club will now be supporting and working hard with Kieran to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.
Right thigh. Thomas is currently being assessed ahead of the weekend after aggravating his thigh during Monday night’s match at Crystal Palace.
Left calf. Takehiro is making progress in his recovery from a muscle injury to his left calf, which he sustained in February. Takehiro had successfully recovered from a muscle injury sustained to his right calf in January.
It is hoped Takehiro will be back in full training after the match at Southampton on Saturday, April 16.
All other players in the men’s first team squad are currently fit and available for selection.
