England bowler Tim Bresnan will fly to the US this week to undergo a second operation on his elbow.

England fast bowler Tim Bresnan is due to undergo a second operation on his elbow in the United States.

The 27-year-old was forced to pull out of England's tour of New Zealand, which gets underway on Saturday, due to the injury.

"He's going out to America in the next week or so, and he'll be there for a week or two to have an operation and then some rehab on his elbow," Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale told The Guardian.

Bresnan last had surgery on his troublesome elbow in November 2011.
