Leeds United player Ramon Nunez could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a suspected cruciate knee ligament injury.

Nunez was stretchered off in the development squad`s game with Wigan Athletic at Elland Road on Monday afternoon.

Development squad manager Neil Redfearn spoke after the game and said the early signs are not good. Speaking on LUTV Redfearn said, “The reports that are coming back are that it is a possible ACL – Cruciate ligament rupture.”

Nunez is currently on the transfer list at Elland Road and if it is a cruciate ligament rupture then the Honduran can expect to be out for at least six months.

Fellow Leeds player Davide Somma is still out of the squad after suffering a similar injury over twelve months ago.
