Stoke’s Tyrese Campbell is set to the miss the rest of the season, the Sky Bet Championship side have announced.

Campbell suffered a serious knee injury during the home defeat to Cardiff on December 8 and missed Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Derby.

The 20-year-old striker’s injury was assessed by two specialists who gave City manager Michael O’Neill the news he had been dreading.

O’Neill told the club’s website: “It’s a cruel blow for us but even more so for Tyrese, a young man with a great future who had been performing so well for us this season.”

Campbell had scored seven goals in all competitions for the Potters this season.
