Bournemouth defender Charlie Daniels could be out for the rest of the season.
The left back is set to endure more injury misery, given he suffered a serious knee injury in the 3-1 loss to Manchester City last weekend.
Now Daniels will undergo surgery to repair the problem - his second knee injury in the past few years.
In a statement, Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: "We are devastated for Charlie, who had worked so hard to come back from his previous knee injury on his left knee in the second half of last season.
"Our worst fears were confirmed following scans this week.
"Charlie is a big character around this club, he has been a huge part of our journey and our rise through the leagues and he will continue to be just as important while undergoing his recovery.
"He will receive the best possible treatment and rehabilitation while he goes through this process, as well as the love and support of everyone here at the club."
