Crystal Palace defender Nathan Ferguson looks set for surgery on a hamstring injury he suffered featuring for the U21 side in Tuesday night’s Premier League International Cup win over Monaco.
The South London Press understands that the 23-year-old has picked up a serious hamstring injury and is almost certain to need surgery on the problem.
Ferguson played 90 minutes for Darren Powell’s side in their 3-1 win over Monaco, as he stepped up his return to the first team after suffering a hamstring problem he picked up towards the end of last season.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson confirmed that the 23-year-old had picked up an injury in his pre-Tottenham Hotspur press conference, but did not divulge how serious the problem was.
Ferguson, who signed a new one-year deal in the summer, has only played eight minutes of senior football since signing from West Brom in July 2020.
