Sunderland prospect Tom Beadling faces two months on the sidelines after undergoing an operation on a broken ankle.

The centre-half suffered the injury during Sunderland’s behind-closed-doors game against Hartlepool United last week and has already undergo surgery on the problem.

It’s a blow to the 19-year-old, who trained and played with the first-team squad during pre-season and had been on the fringes of Dick Advocaat’s plans.
