Southampton dealt blow with summer signing ruled out with injury

Southampton winger Ryan Fraser is poised to be sidelined for a month with a knee injury, as per a report by BBC Sport.

Southampton will be without the attacker for the next four weeks at least as they eye promotion from the Championship.

Fraser, 30, is currently on loan with the Saints from Newcastle United.

Their boss Russell Martin has said, as per a report by BBC Sport: “He’s a really big character in the dressing room, so we lose something when he doesn’t play which is his relentless running ability, his ability to cross on the move, his desire to go and score and assist and work hard for the team and the others need to step up now.”

Southampton blow

Fraser was signed by Southampton to bolster their attacking department and he has turned into a useful player for them this season.

He has made 32 appearances in all competitions for the Saints so far in this campaign and has scored eight goals, six of which have come in the league.

The Scotland international, who has 26 caps to his name, is due to return to Newcastle this summer but he has fallen out of favour with the Premier League outfit, hence why he was allowed to leave on a temporary basis last year.

Fraser started out at Aberdeen before moving down to England in 2012. He then spent eight years with the Cherries and helped them rise from League One to the top flight.

Newcastle then snapped him up and he has since played 59 games for the Toon Army to date, finding the net on three occasions.

Southampton have seen their form halt a bit over recent weeks. They have lost three of their last four games against Bristol City, Hull City and Millwall and need to find their feet again as Leeds United race away from them.

Next up for the Saints is an FA Cup away trip to Liverpool.
