Brighton striker Chris McPhee has undergone an operation on his foot that will keep him out until after Christmas.

The Seagulls' front man suffered a fractured metatarsal during the summer but despite a prolonged period of rehabilitation the problem has not healed satisfactorily.

After limping out of a comeback attempt in October X-rays were inconclusive and McPhee has now undergone surgery in an effort to provide a long-term solution.

The promising striker is a graduate of the Brighton youth team and scored six goals during the 2003-04 season.
