Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson says he fears the worst after winger Filipe Morais was injured during a pre-season friendly.
The Bantams lost 2-1 at Guiseley, but an injury to the Portuguese winger's knee has worried Parkinson more than the result.
In a much-changed Bradford squad for the friendly, nine trialists and five scholars featured in total for Parkinson's side throughout the night.
Monday was a low day down at the training ground given that one of our key players had just got injured.
Following the results of Filipe Morais' scan, the club can confirm that the Portuguese winger has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.
Morais is set to be sidelined now for anything between six to nine months due to the injury, meaning he could sadly miss the whole season.
Bradford City teenage striker Ollie McBurnie has moved to Swansea.
McBurnie, 19, who made only four senior starts for Bradford, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal and will join the Swans' development squad.
"I'm really excited about getting started," McBurnie told Swansea's official website.
"I've known about the interest for a little while now but it all got finalised pretty quickly and the hard work starts now.
"I'm thankful for everything that Bradford has done for me, but when a club like Swansea comes in for you then you can't say no.
"It's the perfect opportunity for me and the right time to sign. Hopefully I can have a good start for the Under-21s and continue to learn and develop during my time here.
"Swansea are now playing Category One games and they are the best fixtures in the country. You want to challenge yourself against the best players and I'm really looking forward to getting started."
McBurnie made his debut for Bradford against Rotherham in the FA Cup in November 2013 and the first of only two league starts followed a month later against the same club.
He made a total of 20 appearances for the Bantams, 16 as a substitute, but failed to score and had two loan spells at Chester last season, scoring five goals in 14 games.

Bradford have turned down an approach from Sheffield United to speak to manager Phil Parkinson.
The Blades are in the hunt for a new manager after sacking Nigel Clough and his entire backroom team on Monday.
But Bradford are desperate to keep hold of Parkinson, 47, who has a year left to run on his current contract at Valley Parade.
Bradford's joint-chairman Mark Lawn told Press Association Sport: "It's true we've been contacted by Sheffield United.
"They want to speak to Phil, but we've turned their request down. We've made it perfectly clear that we want Phil to stay."
When asked if Bradford's board will open talks with Parkinson over a new deal, Lawn added: "That's up to Phil.
"We'd be happy to do that. He has another year left on his contract and he knows we always look to negotiate new contracts at the end of their terms."
Lawn refused to comment on whether Parkinson had a get-out clause in his deal that the Blades had failed to activate.
"I'm not willing to discuss the finer points of Phil's deal," he added.
Parkinson penned a three-year deal at the end of the 2012/13 season after leading Bradford to the League Cup final and to promotion from Sky Bet League Two.
He guided the club to a seventh-placed finish in League One this season, missing out on the play-offs by four points.
Clough paid the price for the Blades' failure to win promotion via the play-offs as they recently lost out to Swindon in the semi-finals.
The South Yorkshire club, searching for their eighth manager since being relegated from the Premier League in 2007, will embark on a fifth campaign in the third tier next term.
