According to a statement by the Premier League club, the 23-year-old will undergo surgery to stabilise the fracture.

 “Moses was assessed by surgeons in London yesterday [Wednesday] who stated the player would be required to undergo more surgery to stabilise the fracture and this will be undertaken early next week,” the statement read.

Positively, the 23-year-old's knee ligaments remain intact, including the MPFL (medial patella femoral ligament) reconstruction he had in the summer. The club, staff and players wish Moses a full and speedy recovery from this latest setback.”
