Tom Cleverley will miss the opening weeks of the new season after undergoing surgery.
A decision was taken for the Watford midfielder to go under the knife to cure a long-standing Achilles problem. Cleverley joined the Hornets on a 5-year deal following a successful loan-spell but endured a frustrating 2017/18 due to ongoing hamstring problems which effectively ended his season in January. It was hoped that the break would resolve the issue but following his return, the problem once again flared-up meaning Watford will be without the services of Cleverley until September at the earliest. "This is something I’ve put up with during my career so it’s good to get it sorted," he said. "I had been used to playing with pain in my ankle. Now that’s going to be a thing of the past, I’ll be fit and raring to win my place back once I’ve finished my rehab." Javi Gracia could take a punt on former Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell who is currently on trial at the club with Nathaniel Chalobah still working his way back to full fitness. Jul 22 - 1:25 AM
