Aston Villa suffer major Kamara injury blow

Aston Villa have been hit by a major injury blow suffered by Boubacar Kamara.

The 22-year-old was forced off late in the first half of last week's 1-0 win over Southampton and reports in France claim scans have revealed ligament damage.

Kamara was one of Steven Gerrard's key summer signings, arriving on a free transfer from Marseille but is unlikely to be available to the Villa boss until the Premier League resumes after Qatar 2022, says the Express & News.

The injury is a hugely disappointing blow for the player, who made his senior France debut earlier this year and still harboured hopes of forcing his way into Didier Deschamps' tournament squad.

But it is arguably more serious for Gerrard, who had already lost £26million summer signing Diego Carlos to a ruptured Achilles.

Villa also have concerns over Lucas Digne after the left-back withdrew from the France squad with what is feared to be a stress fracture of his right ankle.
