AFC Bournemouth physio Steve Hard has reiterated that there is currently no timescale on a possible return for Cherries striker Charlie Sheringham.

Sheringham underwent a further operation to attempt to cure his foot injury earlier this month.

The Cherries striker sustained the foot injury scoring against Brentford on Boxing Day 2011. The initial x-ray was unclear but a later MRI scan revealed a fracture to the navicular.

In January he had an operation to insert two screws in to fix the bone and he spent three months in a protective boot, in May he had hoped that his recovery was on course for him to return to full training during pre-season, however when he stopped wearing the protective air boot he began to feel discomfort in one of his toes during light jogging.

To give the toe time to settle, Sheringham eased off on impact work and just continued light exercises. However whilst the problem with his toe then cleared, he then started experiencing discomfort in his heel and while the use of a specialised anti-gravity treadmill, helped with his rehab, in July he was set to go and have a biomechanical assessment review regarding his heel and he continued his rehabilitation programme with physio Steve Hard and received intensive treatment at the Football Association’s recently opened new headquarters at St George`s Park.

Following the latest operation it is hopes Sheringham can start running again next month.

Hard told

‘Charlie Sheringham had his operation four weeks ago and has shown signs of slow improvement. He will hopefully be back running within the next week, but as I have said many times before, there is no timescale – we are taking each day as it comes.
