Luke Shaw will be out for “the next two or three weeks” as he prepares to have minor leg surgery.

The England international was substituted during the second half of last weekend’s Premier League match against Leicester City due to discomfort in his previously fractured leg.

Shaw sustained a double leg fracture in 2015 against PSV Eindhoven, and it is believed that two metal bolts were inserted into his leg during the procedure.

Ralf Rangnick has stated that the left-back will now undergo surgery on Saturday to have the bolts removed, putting him out for at least two weeks.

“Luke is still injured, we had to take him off at half-time (against Leicester), he’s had his problems with his leg where he had the operation in 2015. The doctor told me they decided to remove two metal bolts in his leg and this will happen tomorrow and he will be out for the next two or three weeks,” Rangnick told reporters.

The 26-year-old was once again a fixture for the 20-time English champions in 2021-22, appearing in 27 matches across all competitions and recording five assists.
