Michael Keane is set for a spell on the sidelines following a nasty clash of heads which left the centre-back with a hairline fracture of the skull.
The 25-year-old collided with team-mate Idrissa Gueye in time added on at Bournemouth on Saturday and was stretchered from the field with his head fixed in a neck brace. Post-match, manager Marco Silva confirmed Keane had been taken to hospital for further tests which revealed the extent of his injury. "I’m okay but suffered a small hairline fracture of the skull which will heal itself," he posted on Instagram. "[It] means I won’t be able to have any head contact for three to four weeks." Once cleared, Keane will resume full training, but during the interim, Silva is likely to call upon Kurt Zouma who has been waiting patiently for his first start since arriving on deadline day. The Chelsea loanee is expected to line-up alongside Mason Holgate as Phil Jagielka serves the final game of his ban after being sent-off at Molineux on the opening weekend. Aug 27 - 3:40 PM
