Rumours have been circulating online about Blues striker Isaac Vassell potentially being out for the rest of the season following a new injury he’s picked up in training this week.
It has today been confirmed those rumours are true by BBC journalist Richard Wilford.
Just how long he will be out for or where in injury is has yet to be announced, but many believe it’s a torn thigh muscle / disjointed hip bone.
Blues fans will hear more on the unfortunate news later on when Garry Monk gives his Nottingham Forest press conference.
Vassell had been making good progress in training before this and many Blues fans were calling on him to be the man to get the team firing again.
The 24-year-old has been out of action since he hobbled off in the goalless draw with Aston Villa way back in October.
In a recent interview he expressed his view to get back into the team:
“I felt I was just getting into my stride when the injury happened, hopefully it will be like a new signing for them [the supporters] and I can’t wait to get back and show them what I can do again.”
It seems Blues fans will have to wait longer than expected to see him in a blue shirt again.
What are your thoughts? Was Vassell the man to get the goals and will we be okay on that front without him? Let us know in the comment section below!
