Canaries confirm Cort surgery

24 March 2009 12:46
Norwich City's battle to avoid relegation has been hit by the news that Carl Cort will have to endure an operation on his injured foot. The 31-year-old has been sidelined since the 2-0 defeat at Blackpool almost three weeks ago. Canaries boss Bryan Gunn told the club's official website: "Carl's visiting a specialist in London on Wednesday to remove a bursar from his foot. "It's an injury more commonly found in athletics and other sports rather than football - it's not a break but it is painful and it requires an operation. "Once he returns from his operation we'll be in a position to assess how long Carl will be out of action."
