The 25-year-old sustained the injury against Wolves in September and it was initially hoped a period of rest would rule out the need for an operation.

But a further consultation with a specialist resulted in Taylor going under the knife and facing the prospect of six months on the sidelines.

"Paul has had a metal plate inserted to fix the injury in his mid-foot area," Ipswich physio Matt Byard told his club's official website.

"He will be in a cast for six weeks and his total recovery is likely to take around six months.

"You can never be totally accurate with a return to action on long-term injuries. It's possible he could make the last few weeks of the season but, more realistically, we are probably looking at Paul coming back fit and well for pre-season."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
