Norwich winger Luke Chadwick will be out for three months after finally scheduling an operation on his troublesome shoulder injury.
Luke Chadwick has been struggling with injury for some time
Chadwick has been struggling with the injury for several months but manager Glenn Roeder has waited until the January transfer window to book him in.
"Now I think it's right for him to have the operation which will take place on 7 or 8 January," said Roeder.
"Unfortunately this means we will be without his services for three months."
