Southampton record signing Gaston Ramirez is ruled out for six weeks with a thigh injury.

Southampton record signing Gaston Ramirez will absent for six weeks due to a thigh injury, it has been revealed.

The Uruguay international suffered a dead leg in training before his thigh muscle swelled up, which resulted in Ramirez spending two days in hospital.

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins said: "The muscle swelled up very much because there was nowhere for the blood to go, so there was a lot of pressure on his thigh.

"He has had to have a couple of days in hospital to try and relieve the pressure, so obviously he is not going to go and join the Uruguayan team over the international break."

Ramirez has scored one goal in three games for Southampton since he moved from Bologna during the summer.
