IRELAND WINGER ROBBIE Brady will be out of action for around four weeks, his club Hull has confirmed.

Despite being named in Noel King’s 26-man squad to face Germany and Kazakhstan this month, the caretaker manager did express doubts whether the 21-year-old would be available having struggled with a hernia problem in recent weeks.

Last night, the FAI revealed that the former Manchester United man would have an operation and, this afternoon, the Tigers have released a statement of their own.

“Robbie Brady will undergo surgery on a hernia problem on Tuesday afternoon which will see the Republic of Ireland international sidelined for around four weeks.

“Brady has been playing through the problem for a number of weeks and it had initially been hoped that he would be able to play against Aston Villa this coming Saturday before having an operation during the following international break.

“However, with the discomfort growing with each game, Brady has decided to go ahead with surgery at the earliest opportunity.”

Hull City’s Head of Medical Services Rob Price added:  “It’s actually a condition that we’ve been managing for around six weeks now,” revealed Rob Price, Hull City’s Head of Medical Services.

“Robbie has managed to play through that and been particularly successful despite being in a reasonable amount of pain.

We had a sit down between Robbie, the manager and myself to make a decision on when it would be best to have the surgery and Robbie decided that he couldn’t really continue to play with the pain he was having.

“We met with the surgeon on Monday night and Robbie will go for surgery this afternoon. We’re hopeful that he will be back playing sometime within around four weeks.”

Brady has been one of Hull’s stand-out performers this season with four goals to his name.
