Send

Liverpool's £15M man Joe Allen is set for 3 months out as prepares to undergo surgery on his shoulder.

The player has been suffering with a recurrence of a long-standing problem since the Autumn, and surgeons have told the club and player that he will need three months of recuperation following surgery.

The reds will hope he is ready for pre-season training so, as the Echo indicates, the player is likely to undergo the operation towards the end of this month.

Allen suffered a shoulder injury whilst at school and did have surgery whilst at Swansea three years ago, but the problem has flared up yet again.
