Ankle surgery for Abou Diaby

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed Abou Diaby will miss the start of the season with an ankle injury.

• Arsenal losing patience
• 'Nothing official' on Campbell
• Walcott injury scare for Arsenal

Diaby has struggled to stay injury free since sustaining a fractured, dislocated ankle in 2006. Last campaign the France international managed just 13 Premier league starts for Arsenal.

The former Auxerre midfielder has now undergone surgery on a troublesome ankle problem, meaning he will miss the start of the new season.

Wenger told the club's official website: "Abou had ankle surgery during the break. Normally he should be back eight to ten weeks after his surgery, which means the end of August."
