Eduardo undergoes minor operation

Eduardo da Silva
There were concerns over Eduardo's career when he was initially injured

Arsenal striker Eduardo has undergone revision surgery on the left ankle he dislocated over a year ago.

The Croatia international was injured in February 2008 following a tackle by Birmingham's Martin Taylor, which also resulted in a fractured left fibula.

After 12 months out he returned to action in February this year - only for a hamstring problem to sideline him.

And the 25-year-old has now had another minor operation on his ankle, though he will return for pre-season training.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The operation went well and Eduardo will follow a dedicated rehabilitation programme throughout June.


"He is expected to return to full training in pre-season with the rest of the squad."

Eduardo joined Arsenal from Dinamo Zagreb for around £7.5m in July 2007, but has managed only 24 starts since then, scoring 15 goals.
