Carl Ikeme: May be out for the rest of the season

Ikeme let a back-pass from David Davis go through his legs in their Championship relegation scrap with Bristol City on Saturday.

Dean Saunders' side came from behind to win the game 2-1 but Ikeme is understood to be angry at being the subject of criticism from his manager at half-time for his part in the own goal.

The 26-year-old punched a tactics board in the dressing room which may have led to him breaking a bone in his hand, with Dorus de Vries subsequently coming on in his place for the second half at Molineux.

Saunders, who originally denied the incident took place, said: "After the game I didn't know he had broken his hand.

"I wanted to protect Carl and protect what goes on inside the dressing room but now it has all come out I have a responsibility to let the supporters know why he's not available to play.

"Carl was frustrated at making his mistake and has punched the tactics board which is only cardboard but there is a metal bar at the back of it which has damaged his hand.

"I'm not sure whether he will be out for the season but it will be for some weeks."

Saunders has recalled Republic of Ireland U21 international Aaron McCarey from his loan spell at Walsall to offer cover to De Vries.

I

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.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
