Huddersfield defender Ollie Turton has been ruled out for "a number of months" after undergoing knee surgery.

The 31-year-old recently returned to training after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament against Wigan in February 2023.

However, he had to come off 45 minutes into his first game back in the B Team last week and has subsequently had an operation on his knee meniscus.

"I'm absolutely gutted for Ollie," boss Darren Moore told the club website..

"Coming back from long-term injury is hard and suffering a setback like this is never easy.

"We all saw first hand just how much work he was putting in to regain fitness. We were looking forward to having him rejoin our group."

Huddersfield Town are currently 21st in the table, three points above the relegation zone.
