Further to the injury sustained during our match at Manchester United on Wednesday night, we can confirm that Rob Holding has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.
Rob will undergo surgery to repair this in the coming days. The rehabilitation process is expected to take between six to nine months.
Everyone at the club will now be working as hard as we can to ensure Rob is back on the pitch as soon as possible.
