Season KO for City youngster
Manchester City youngster Harry Bunn is unlikely to play again this season after he suffered severe knee ligament damage.
The highly-rated striker, who is currently out on loan with Crewe Alexandra, landed awkwardly during Saturday's League One game against Tranmere Rovers, and the diagnosis isn't good. Bunn has now returned to his parent club to undergo treatment under the watch of City's medical staff after making four appearances for Steve Davis' side, and it's understood he will require surgery to repair both his cruciate and lateral ligaments. The 19-year-old only joined the Alex in a six-month deal towards the back end of last month, after previous temporary spells with Rochdale, Preston and Oldham. Davis said: "He's been with the consultant over in Manchester and has found out that he's got some extensive ligament damage, his lateral ligament and his cruciate ligament. "So he's going to need a couple of operations to put that right and obviously an extensive rehabilitation period depending on how well that goes. It could be the season to be honest. "We're just disappointed for him. He's a lovely lad, he came here to get some games and was enjoying his football. "We have been in dialogue with Manchester City and he will have the very best consultants and surgeons there."
