Sunderland forward Jermain Defoe is currently being assessed after suffering a thigh injury in preseason training.
The club's star forward, who scored a team-high 15 goals in the Premier League last season including 11 in the New Year alone, will have a scan this week and will likely be held out for the remainder of the preseason in order to ensure he is fit for the club's season opener in mid-August. Said first-team coach Robbie Stockdale: "It won’t be a long injury and I’m sure Jermain will be keen to be fit for the first game of the season, and we are as well. At the moment it’s probably too early to say and we don’t think it’s anything serious, but obviously with a player like Jermain you don’t to take any risks. Jul 27 - 6:27 PM
