Ipswich star out for three months

The 27-year-old was forced to undergo a potentially career-savin surgery on a blood clot on Thursday.

The Irishman suffered a dead leg during training in Holland.

Ipswich boss Roy Keane told BBC Radio Suffolk: “He was very, very lucky.

“There was a lot of bleeding and they had to open up his leg. It could have been the end of his career.”
