Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has undergone knee surgery, the Premier League club have announced.

The 24-year-old had an operation on a meniscus problem on Wednesday night after withdrawing from the France squad.

No timescale has been given for his recovery.

Mendy missed the majority of last season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Crystal Palace in September 2017.

He returned from injury in April this year and has started nine of City's 12 Premier League games this season.

Mendy cost a reported £52million when he moved to the Etihad from Monaco in 2017.
