The 19-year-old Academy graduate has made eight appearances this season, scoring three goals, after signing a new two-year deal with the club in the summer.

But he sustained the injury playing in the 2-0 defeat against Huddersfield on October 15 and manager Steven Pressley hopes to see him back within a few weeks.

"Billy (Daniels) is off for his operation and the procedure will take place on Wednesday," he told the club's official website.

"We are hoping he will be back in contention in a couple of weeks as he has given us a valuable option already this season."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
