Sunderland midfielder Dwight Yorke could miss the rest of the club´s pre-season campaign after suffering a suspected fractured cheekbone.

The 36-year-old, who signed a new one-year contract earlier this summer, was hurt in a collision with goalkeeper Nikola Milojevic in Wednesday night´s 1-1 draw with Vitoria de Setubal in Portugal.

Manager Roy Keane told the club´s official website, "We thought it was just a bang on the head, but there could be a fracture there, around his eye. He will be out for a number of weeks."
