AFC Bournemouth left back Rhoys Wiggins has undergone a second operation on his knee injury.

Wiggins had been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury whilst on loan with Championship side Birmingham City in October.

Wiggins had joined on a half season loan deal on August transfer deadline day, but he failed to make an appearance until October.

Then on only his second appearance and first start, he suffered the season ending knee injury.

He underwent an operation shortly afterwards, but a second operation was required this month as Wiggins had been unable to straighten his leg.

Wiggins also had scar tissue and a fat pad removed.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo

“Rhoys has had another operation to try to get him to fully straighten his knee.

“His knee was locked at an angle that was not good for him – he could not fully extend it. He has had a procedure that helps him do that so now he starts his road back.”

“Rhoys is suffering a difficult time at the moment, that is why our thoughts are with him, We are there to support him. This is where the club and the people behind the scenes are really important, to support the players who are not able to enjoy their careers and play football, which is what everyone wants to do.

“It is very important Rhoys gets that support at this time.”
