Arsenal midfielder Jack Jebb confirms he is out for 6-8 weeks with knee ligament injury

Emirates Stadium

Recently on loan with Stevenage Borough, Jack Jebb is out of action for a couple of months.

When Jack Jebb first started to make his name at Arsenal he was immediately compared to Jack Wilshere, and tipped for a big future at Arsenal.

But in recent times things have been difficult for Jebb. He had recently struggled to make his way into the Arsenal under-21 side as other young players seemed to overtake him.

So he recently took the brave step of going out on loan, joining Stevenage Borough in League Two. He originally joined on a one-month deal but that was subsequently extended.

His time in Hertfordshire has gone OK up until now. He has played four times in the league and also featured in the FA Cup. He even managed a goal against Bishop's Stortford in the Herts Senior Cup competition.

Unfortunately the Arsenal injury curse continues, as Jebb has suffered a nasty knee injury.

He had a scan yesterday after hurting the joint in training and has now revealed the results of the scan on Twitter.

His loan spell at Stevenage is now likely to come to an end so he can return to Arsenal for treatment on the injury.
