Charles N'Zogbia: Achilles injury

A statement on the club's website said N'Zogbia sustained the injury while keeping fit on holiday in Miami and had undergone surgery in the United

States.

The club did not reveal how long they expected N'Zogbia to be sidelined but Roddy MacDonald, head of sport and exercise medicine, has travelled to the US and will accompany the Frenchman back to Birmingham next week.

Villa boss Paul Lambert said: "The priority is to ensure that Charles receives the very best care, and he has done and will continue to do so throughout his recovery period.

"It's a blow for Charles, obviously, but he'll get his head down and get himself fit again and he'll have plenty of support in doing so."

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.
