The 24-year-old was taken ill on Friday and sat out the 0-0 draw against Fulham on Saturday.

Manager Owen Coyle said: "Gary suffered a pain in his arm and it became severely swollen on the day of the game.

"There was no way he could play so we took him straight off to hospital. It turns out he had a blood clot in his arm, so he is going to be out for a number of months."
