Phillips Under The Surgeons Knife

Phillips Under The Surgeons Knife

Aston Villa have confirmed that striker Kevin Phillips has undergone keyhole surgery in an attempt to solve his troublesome ankle injury. Phillips suffered a bad injury to his ankle last season whilst at Southampton and aggravated it last week in training, which meant he had to sit out the 1-1 draw v Bolton.

O'Leary told the official site: 'Hopefully it won't put him out for too long.' And explained the problem 'We believe there could be a little bit of floating bone that's causing him problems. It's irritating him, but hopefully it won't put him out for too long. Until we know the results of the surgery, we can't say just how long.'

The former Sunderland and Southampton striker has been plagued with injuries this season, lets hope this will resolve that because when fit, he is as deadly as they come!
