Published Add your comment

Fulham have confirmed that Andy Johnson has been ruled out for the rest of the season following surgery on his knee.

The club sent Johnson to America earlier this week where he was operated on by the man credited for saving the careers of Alan Shearer and Michael Owen - world-renowned surgeon Dr Richard Steadman.

A statement on Fulham's official website read: "The club can confirm that following knee surgery in Colorado by eminent specialist Dr Richard Steadman, Andrew Johnson will not be available for the remainder of the current 09/10 season."

The statement continued: "Following the prognosis received from the surgeon, the Club fully expects Andrew to take part in the latter part of pre-season training in readiness for the new season."
