Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is once again battling to save his career as the club confirmed he would miss the remainder of the season following surgery.

Fletcher seemed to have conquered his colitis problem when he managed to get through three games out of four at the end of November. But since starting at Reading on December 1, the 28-year-old has managed just a couple of brief substitute appearances before undergoing surgery that may help him conquer the chronic bowel condition for good.

A United statement read: "Darren Fletcher will be unavailable for the remainder of this season having undergone surgery to resolve his ulcerative colitis condition."
