Summer signing Siem de Jong is likely to miss the remainder of 2014 after suffering a training ground injury earlier this week.
News broke late on Thursday that Dutch international Siem de Jong was expected to be out until the beginning of 2015 with a suspected grade three / complete rupture of his thigh muscle; reports which were later confirmed by an official club statement "Siem de Jong sustained an injury to his right thigh in training earlier this week and is to be assessed further at the start of next week. Initial indications are that he is likely to be out for a number of months." Despite a busy summer in the transfer market de Jong was touted as the standout player but injuries have hampered his progress – toe and calf issues – limiting his game time to just 99 minutes of British Premier League action.
