London - Watford midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is set to have surgery on a knee injury he suffered in training last week.

Chalobah had impressed for the Premier League club since his close-season move from Chelsea.

However, Watford performance director Gavin Benjafield confirmed the 22-year-old, who was called into the England squad for their previous World Cup qualifiers, is now set for an extended spell on the sidelines.
