The Tuscan club feared the 22-year-old Egypt international had aggravated an existing anterior cruciate ligament injury during his country's friendly victory over Uganda on August 14.

But a statement published on Fiorentina's official website ruled out significant damage to Hegazy's knee while confirming the centre-back will now be subjected to two weeks of controlled physiotherapy - ruling him out of Monday's game against Catania and a trip to Genoa on September 1.

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.
