Sunderland have confirmed that striker Steven Fletcher has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing ankle surgery.
The 26-year-old has missed the club's last three games after damaging ankle ligaments whilst on international duty with Scotland last month. The Black Cats had hoped Fletcher would recover without requiring surgery, but that wasn't the case and the player had the operation on Monday.
Sunderland haven't yet given a timescale for his recovery. However, it's understood Fletcher - who is the club's top scorer this season with 11 goals - should be ready for the start of the 2013/2014 campaign.

It's been a week that Sunderland Football Club will never forget. But whatever the opinions and whatever the outcome, there was always going to be a very difficult match to play at the end of it.
Paolo Di Canio's first game in charge of the Black Cats is away at Chelsea on Sunday.

Niall Quinn, ex-Chairman of Sunderland Football Club, is a patron of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which is celebrating its 5th anniversary.
He said: "I feel privileged to have met Sir Bobby, let alone to have contributed in a small way to his Foundation and the lesson I have taken from my involvement is that it's not what you have, it's what you leave behind.
"Sir Bobby may no longer be with us, but he left behind an incredible legacy and a remarkable team. Reaching £5m is a brilliant achievement, a testament to the deep generosity and tireless efforts of so many people.
"Bobby's memory brings out the best in people. Long may it continue."
