Lee Cattermole: Hip surgery

Sunderland skipper Lee Cattermole will be out of action for four months after undergoing surgery in America to address a long-standing hip problem.

The 28-year-old midfielder, who has made just three appearances to date this season, had a procedure to repair a torn cartilage in his hip on Monday and now faces a long haul back to fitness.

Manager David Moyes said: “Lee Cattermole had an operation in America on Monday on a torn cartilage in his hip and will be out for four months. He’s out there just now, coming back in the next day or two, I think.”
