England left-back Luke Shaw is set for up to six to nine months on the sidelines after two orthopaedic surgeons and a trauma specialist conducted an operation on Tuesday night after suffering a career-ending injury in the Netherlands.

It is understood the 20-year-old Manchester United defender will have another operation on his fractured tibia and fibula at St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on Friday before returning to England.

Shaw is expected to miss the rest of the season after breaking his lower leg in two places during United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
