Given season in doubt

Manchester goalkeeper Shay Given may require shoulder surgery that would rule him out for the remainder of the season.

Given, 34, has suffered a dislocated shoulder twice in the past 10 months and damaged the joint again in the warm-up for City’s Europa League match against Aris Salonika last Tuesday.

The Republic of Ireland international will see a specialist in London on Wednesday and is expected to require a reconstruction.

Given has found himself behind England international Joe Hart in the pecking order at City and has publicly sought a transfer away from the club in previous transfer windows.

He will likely be allowed to leave in the close season, with a move to Celtic or Fulham touted as possibilities.
