Arsenal loanee Tyreece John-Jules is set to be out for three to four months after undergoing surgery on a hamstring injury.
John-Jules suffered the injury during Ipswich Town’s 4-4 draw against Charlton Athletic at the end of last month.
Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna confirmed that John-Jules will return to Arsenal for treatment.
As reported by TWTD, McKenna said: ‘Tyreece has had surgery to repair his hamstring. He is going to spend a period of time back at Arsenal for the initial stages of his rehab, which makes sense on a few different levels.
‘He will probably join us a few weeks down the line when our medical team and their medical team agree and there is a handover. It is months, rather than weeks, for the injury.
‘The injury is approximately a three-to-four-month injury. Of course, you have to see how the recovery period goes.’
John-Jules has had much misfortune with injuries throughout his career so far. He has previously had loan spells at Lincoln City, Doncaster Rovers, Blackpool and Sheffield Wednesday.
So far he has made 21 appearances for Ipswich and has scored three times.
At the age of 21 he is approaching the time where a decision will be need to be made regarding his longterm future at Arsenal.
