Paris Saint-Germain reveal they will wait until the middle of next month before assessing Neymar's injury, having undergone an operation on Saturday.

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that Neymar underwent "successful" surgery on his fractured foot at a hospital in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.

The Brazil international is now facing up to three months on the sidelines as a result of the damage, which he sustained in the 3-0 league win over Marseille last weekend.

Providing an update on the world's most expensive player's condition, PSG revealed that they will wait until the middle of next month before determining when they can expect to have him back.

A club statement read: "Neymar Jr underwent surgery today at the Materdei Hospital in Belo Horizonte. The operation, conducted by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, was successful.

"The operation consisted of the laying of a screw associated with a transplant fixed at the level of the lesion of the fifth metatarsal of the right foot.

"Re-education will begin immediately under the direction of a club physiotherapist. Neymar's injury will be assessed in six weeks' time to establish a possible date for his return to training."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi stressed earlier this week that surgery 'was the only option' for Neymar.
