Aston Villa have announced that Charles N'Zogbia has undergone surgery after suffering an Achilles injury while on holiday.

The 27-year-old, who suffered the problem while in Miami, swiftly received surgery in the US this week and will return to the Midlands outfit next week.

"The priority is to ensure that Charles receives the very best care and he has done and will continue to do so throughout his recovery period," manager Paul Lambert told the club's official website.

"It's a blow for Charles, obviously, but he'll get his head down and get himself fit again and he'll have plenty of support in doing so."

The club have not revealed for how long N'Zogbia could be sidelined with the injury.
