Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling ruled out opening 10 games

Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling faces an extended period on the sidelines.

Gosling will be sidelined for around three months after undergoing surgery on a hip problem.

The 29-year-old underwent an operation at the weekend having suffered the injury during a pre-season training session with the south coast club.

He could miss the Cherries' opening 10 top-flight fixtures, beginning with the home game against newly-promoted Sheffield United on August 10.

"AFC Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling has undergone surgery on a hip muscle injury and will be sidelined for around three months," read a club statement.

"Having been assessed by both the club's medical staff and a specialist, Gosling was operated on over the weekend."
