Cardiff City defender Kerrea Gilbert is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder in a training ground collision.
Gilbert, who is currently on a season-long loan from Arsenal, will travel to London to see a specialist with surgery likely to follow.
Arsenal are happy to let Gilbert continue his rehab at Cardiff with the player set to complete his loan spell at Ninian Park when he returns to full fitness.
Gilbert has been involved in 12 games for the Championship pace setters so far this season and the club have not put a time frame on his return.
Cardiff have moved to offset the loss of Gilbert by asking Watford to extend James Chambers' loan stint at Ninian Park.
