Duncan Watmore: Sunderland forward ruled out for season

Watmore was injured in the final five minutes of Saturday's win against Leicester

Sunderland forward Duncan Watmore will miss the rest of the season after scans revealed he has suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.

The 22-year-old was taken off on a stretcher during Sunderland's 2-1 win over Leicester on Saturday, following a collision with Christian Fuchs.

Watmore has started 11 games for David Moyes' side in the Premier League this season.

The England Under-21 international joined from Altrincham in 2013.

Sunderland have also recently lost defender Paddy McNair and midfielders Lynden Gooch and Lee Cattermole to long-term injuries.
