New injury problem likely to keep defender out for three months

Kane Vincent-Young is expected to be out of action for 12 weeks after undergoing surgery on Tuesday.

The Town defender underwent a groin repair for sportsman's hernia in Doha three weeks ago. He has been recovering well but has now also required secondary surgery to an adductor tendon injury which took place in London.

“These injuries have required very careful management. They involve two separate areas, two separate problems to resolve and both issues have resulted in surgery,” Town physio, Matt Byard, told the Club website.

“We used Dr Muschaweck in Doha, a leading specialist in hernia repair and for the second operation, Mr Schilders in London who is an expert on adductor repair.

“The injuries have required different treatment speciality, hence the different surgeons and should provide the best long term outcome for Kane.

“The operation on Tuesday went very well and we are looking at a recovery period of about 10 weeks before Kane will be able to start first-team training and you are looking at another two weeks or so from there.”
