Liverpool have announced Joe Gomez is to undergo surgery to aid his recovery from a lower leg fracture.
Gomez suffered the injury in the 3-1 Premier League victory at Burnley in early December, and his club said soon after that initial indications suggested he was facing up to six weeks out.
The Reds gave an update on the England international on Monday, saying in a statement on their official website: “Liverpool can confirm Joe Gomez is to undergo surgery to assist his recovery from a lower leg fracture sustained at Burnley on December 5.
“The defender has been undergoing a rehabilitation programme since suffering the initial break at Turf Moor; however, after further diagnosis, the club’s medical staff believe he will benefit from a further procedure to enable a more complete recovery.
“No timescale will be placed on an expected return date for Gomez, though it’s likely he will feature again this season.”
