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."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
