Leeds United striker David Somma will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery last week.

Leeds United boss Brian McDermott has revealed that David Somma will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery last week.

The 28-year-old striker, who has been blighted by injuries in recent seasons, returned to the first-team fold in December, but has struggled for fitness since the turn of the year.

"He's done his cartilage and he's had an operation. It's very unfortunate for him. I don't know exactly how serious it is at the moment, but he needed it done," McDermott told reporters at a press conference.

The South African, who joined the club in 2009, initially suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in July 2011.
