Yeovil Town’s loan winger Josh Neufville has surgery on a broken ankle today, sending a snap from his hospital bed to his instagram account.
Manager Darren Sarll gave an update on the Luton Town man’s injury,
“Josh is in surgery today (Thursday), he has a tough road back. It is probably the worst injury a footballer can get in terms of time off.”
Sarll confirmed that he has suggested that Yeovil Town might be a place where Josh can continue his rehab and regain match fitness.
“We have told him if it’s possible that his first game back when he’s fit can be at Yeovil, we will welcome him with open arms… the impact he had from Day One was incredible.”
“I like those loan players who take the football club to their heart. Remeao Hutton had that, Michael Kelly has that.
When you loan a player you are basically renting them, but Josh has never been like that and I would love him to play for Yeovil again. We have helped his career enormously and he has helped us to come out of a bad start and get a few wins.”
Josh’s Mum, who has taken time to thank Yeovil fans for their support this past week, confirmed that Josh’s surgery had been a complete success.
We of course, wish Josh all the best in his recovery.
