Real Mallorca's highly-rated shot stopper Miguel Angel Moya has been sidelined for a minimum of six weeks after suffering a knee injury.
The young goalkeeper is likely to miss the entirety of the Spanish side's pre-season preparations after picking up the serious injury in training.
Medical tests have confirmed a rupture of the meniscus in the keeper's left knee, and an initial prognosis has ruled him out of action for a month and a half.
Moya will now undergo surgery on Tuesday in a bid to correct the problem ahead of the new Liga season.
The injury blow comes soon after Moya committed his future to the club after attracting interest from a number of big clubs.
