NORWICH City striker Adam Idah is set to undergo hernia surgery.
The 20-year-old has been managing the problem but, after visiting a specialist this week, it has been decided an operation is needed.
Idah will miss the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifiers later this month as a result.
“It’s quite likely Adam will see another specialist this week and likely he needs surgery,” said boss Daniel Farke.
“If that’s the case, we’ll do it straight away and he won’t be available for the internationals. He could be back two weeks after surgery or it could be up to five weeks.”
