Hull City striker Will Keane will be sidelined for up to 12 months after sustaining knee ligament damage during the 2-1 Premier League win over Southampton this month.

“To lose a player of Will’s quality and potential for such a long period of time is a big blow but I’m sure his determination and mindset will see him through the tough journey ahead,” manager Mike Phelan told the club website.

Former Manchester United trainee Keane, without a goal in six appearances in all competitions this season, will have a knee operation later on Tuesday.

Hull, who are third bottom of the table with 10 points from 11 matches, visit bottom club Sunderland on Saturday.
