Sheffield Wednesday have been dealt a blow with news midfielder Kieran Lee will be sidelined for two months due to a hip injury that requires surgery.

The club confirmed the 25-year-old will have an operation to resolve the problem and may be out of action until October.

Lee, a former trainee at Manchester United, was signed from Oldham in the summer of 2012 and made a total of 26 appearances last season for Dave Jones' side.
