Villa rocked as Laursen out for nine months

Aston Villa defender Martin Laursen is facing nine months on the sidelines.

The Mirror says the Danish defender needs another knee operation and spent the weekend agonising over his future in his homeland. Laursen, 31, has played just once this year after his problems flared up again before Christmas.

His absence has coincided with Villa slipping out of Champions League contention. And now medical reports confirm that Laursen must go under the knife if he is to play again.
