Earlier this morning, Lee Ryder tweeted that reports from the Netherlands indicated Jetro’s knee injury against Chelsea would force him to miss the rest of this season.
Now that information has been confirmed by Sky Sports, but Downie has also said that Paul Dummett will be out as well.
Dummett had just returned from a hamstring injury to face Wolves a few weeks ago. He had missed the previous three matches. However, he lasted all of 12 minutes before injuring his other hamstring. This time it’s a severe one as it looks like he’ll be out for the rest of this season.
Steve Bruce will almost certainly have to bring someone in at left wing-back with just Matt Ritchie who can play there. With both Willems and Dummett not able to play anymore this season, that should open up a couple of squad places for potential incomings.
We expect to get more information on both Dummett and Willems as well as a transfer update from Bruce’s press conference scheduled for noon.
