Plymouth Argyle striker Nick Chadwick will not play again this season after undergoing a groin operation.
Chadwick has not featured for The Pilgrims since the end of November, but appeared close to returning from his groin complaint.
Ian Holloway was considering sending the forward out on loan prior to last week's deadline, but he is now out until pre-season.
The 24-year-old requires a three-month rehabilitation period and Pilgrims boss Holloway confirmed the latest setback.
"Hopefully, this will get to the bottom of the problems he has had," Holloway told The Herald.
"It has been a very frustrating, and upsetting, season for him, although he has scored a couple of important goals for us.
"It's unbelievably depressing when all you want to do is play football, but you can't do that because of an injury that won't go away."
Chadwick joined Plymouth from Everton over two years ago and had scored twice in 17 appearances this season prior to his injury.
