Liam Delap: Hull City's on-loan striker out for up to three months with knee injury

Hull City striker Liam Delap will miss up to three months with a knee injury.

The 20-year-old Manchester City loanee has scored seven Championship goals this season but was forced off during their defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

The England Under-21 international has made 27 appearances so far this term.

Boss Liam Rosenior told the club website: "He is looking to two to three months minimum, which is a real shame for him and for us because he's been such a bright spot."

Rosenior said Delap will require another assessment in three weeks, adding: "It is an issue on his knee, but hopefully it can be fixed without surgery.
