The Argentine midfielder suffered multi-ligament damage against Burnley in March 2009 and has faced numerous setbacks on his road to recovery.

Keane revealed back in January that the player had been ruled out for the rest of the season but has now confirmed Civelli could be out for longer than first feared.

He told the Green 'Un: "Hopefully Luca will be back around September time. I've known players to be out two years and then come back strong."
