The full-back, who suffered the injury during the recent home defeat to Burnley, went under the knife last week and now faces a sustained spell out of action.

Physio Alex Dalton told the club website: "James had his operation last week and everything went all right. It was as expected with no complications, so we should see him back in around 12 weeks.

"This week he will stay at home to rest after the operation with his arm in a sling. We will get him back next week, but will not be able to do much for a few weeks when we will get him on a cycle to keep his leg strength up.

"It will be the lad's longest period injured so he has to get his head around it because it will go quicker than he thinks, then he has the task of getting back match fit."

T

hat's it for me, that's ego talking and nothing more. Three seasons in and he still hasn't resolved the issues in defence. This won't end well, he doesn't have the skills needed to sort out the back four and isn't prepared to bring in those who do. This is the worst team I've seen since the late days of Houllier. Brendan...you're fired.
