Norwich City have suffered a blow with the news that Daniel Ayala has been ruled out for two months.
Ayala, 20, joined Norwich this summer from Liverpool on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee after the defender struggled to make an impact at Anfield.
The centre-back featured in the second half of the Canaries' 1-1 draw with Stoke at the weekend before starting in Tuesday's 4-0 Carling Cup loss to MK Dons, limping off in the 77th minute through injury.
Norwich have now confirmed the problem is a knee issue that will see Ayala sidelined for two months.
