Sunderland forward Chris Maguire will be out for up to eight weeks after breaking his leg.

The 30-year-old, who has won two caps for Scotland, fractured his fibula in the first half of the Black Cats' 4-2 win over Gillingham on Tuesday.

Maguire moved to the Stadium of Light last summer from Bury and has scored seven goals in 36 appearances.

"It's a blow for us as he's been important in terms of goals and assists," said manager Jack Ross.
