Exeter City have confirmed that defender Jordan Moore-Taylor will miss the start of the season after having surgery on his right foot.
The 21-year-old, who managed just 27 appearances last season, has suffered with the recurring injury for some time, with the most recent incident coming last October.
That was the second time that the same bone had broke, and the defender underwent surgery on Tuesday, sidelining him for at least six weeks before he begins rehabilitation.
“It is too soon at this stage to estimate a precise return date for the defender but he will be unavailable during the opening weeks of the season,” a club statement read.
“Everyone at the club wishes Jordan well for his recovery period, and we look forward to seeing him back in a City shirt again as soon as possible.”
The defender scored twice in last season’s campaign, and manager Paul Tisdale will hope the defender can come back into his starting line-up for the Grecians promotion bid next season.
