Southampton youngster Kayne McLaggon has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a ruptured Achilles.

The 18-year-old striker suffered the injury in training and has been ruled out for at least three months.

The Welshman made his first-team debut in the Boxing Day defeat at Plymouth and scored his first senior goal for the Saints in their 2-2 draw at Norwich last month.

He had been expected to feature heavily until the end of the season, but will not have to wait until next term for more action.
