Bramble set for surgery

Sunderland have confirmed that Titus Bramble is set to undergo surgery on Thursday and will be sidelined for up to six weeks.

The burly centre-half requires an operation to repair damaged cartilage in his knee.

Bramble was forced to sit out the Black Cats’ 2-2 draw with Everton on Monday as a result of the problem, but the full extent of the injury was unclear at that stage.

It has now been revealed that the 29-year-old will have to go under the knife in order to rid himself of the complaint.

The news comes as a blow to Bramble and Sunderland as he has settled quickly at the Stadium of Light following a summer switch from Wigan.
Huge loss

He has made 13 appearances for the club so far, striking up a formidable partnership at the heart of the back four alongside Michael Turner.

Black Cats boss Steve Bruce admits losing Bramble has come as a ‘huge blow’ and has revealed that he will be without his services for ‘at least six weeks’.

A club statement said: “Sunderland defender Titus Bramble will go under the knife today to repair damaged cartilage in his knee.

“The 29-year-old was admitted to hospital this morning to repair the injury, which was sustained in training recently.”
