The defender sustained the problem shortly after the hour of Saturday's 1-0 loss and had to be substituted before later having to leave St Mary's on crutches.

Reading are yet to determine the full extent of the injury but boss Brian McDermott does not think Morrison will be available for Tuesday's game at fellow Premier League strugglers Sunderland.

And the 21-year-old can be added to a sidelined list of Jimmy Kebe, Pavel Pogrebnyak, Chris Gunter and Alex McCarthy, while Jem Karacan is only just back in light training.

McDermott told Reading's official website: "We've been unfortunate with injuries.

"I'm not one to really moan about it but we've had long-term ones with the likes of Alex McCarthy. But that's why you have a squad.

"I'm not sure Morro' will be available Tuesday, it's his ankle and he's on crutches as a precaution. Pavel is out, Jem, Jimmy and so on. Come Tuesday, we'll be ready again."

Goalkeeper McCarthy suffered his shoulder injury against Queens Park Rangers at the beginning of November and he is now facing an extended spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
