He said: "We are seeing a consultant on Tuesday to confirm our plans but it is now increasingly likely that Grant will require clean-out surgery on his knee.

“We have exhausted all avenues in a bid to avoid this step but it is the right time for us to take this action in order to ensure he is fit and available for the start of pre-season ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

“Grant is naturally disappointed but also hugely determined to make sure he is in the best possible shape for next season.”
