Most people in Wales now accept that poor lifestyle choices aren't just affecting their health, they're placing pressure on the NHS. That's according to findings from the Welsh NHS Confederation:

"A real realisation that our behaviours, whether we drink, smoke, eat unhealthly, don't get enough exercise... has an impact on how we use health services. And also a realisation that healthcare is a finite resource and that people have to use our health services better and more wisely."

Turner has been ruled out for a least 10 to 12 weeks but manager Russell Slade has admitted he could be absent for longer.

The move could now edge Slade into a late change of plans before the transfer window closes on Monday with a replacement for Turner now high on the priority list.

Slade has brought in some cover already in former Huddersfield defender Lee Peltier who can cover right along the back four but with full back John Brayford also exiting the City Stadium this window another dip into the market is likely.
