Jerome suffered the setback during City's opening home Premier League encounter of the campaign against Portsmouth.[LNB]The former Cardiff player was expected to be back available within two to three weeks but it will now be early October before he is ready to return.[LNB]Blues manager Alex McLeish confirmed: "Jerome has had scans on the troubled area and the news is not great.[LNB]"It's enough to keep him out for maybe another month. It was one of those ligament-type injuries.[LNB]"He got a kick on his ankle and heel. It's a blow as Cameron was looking to show us that he's maturing into a Premier League player."[LNB]Meanwhile, midfielder Sebastian Larsson admits his hopes of signing a new contract may have to be shelved until the takeover of the club is completed by Carson Yeung.[LNB]The Sweden international had opened talks with City over a five-year deal.[LNB]Larsson admitted: "It's gone kind of quiet since the situation with the sale of the club. I don't know whether anything can be done now (with a new contract).[LNB]"We were in decent stages of the contract talks but, since all this happened, the club haven't come back with anything.[LNB]"But let's not worry about that because I still have time left on my contract and, until the club come back to me and say they want to do business, I am not going to let it bother me."[LNB][LNB]
