Andre Green has revealed he has undergone a minor knee operation.
According to the winger’s Twitter account, he today underwent a procedure to remove a cyst from his right leg.
Green admitted the issue had caused pain for the ‘last year’, prompting him to seek medical assistance.
However, at this stage it is not clear how long the Aston Villa loanee will be sidelined for.
Tweeting from his account, @AndreGreen_, he wrote: ‘After feeling pain in my knee for the last year due to a cyst I finally decided to get it removed.
‘Thankful everything went well & this small set back can allow me to get back to my best & play 100% fit!
‘Looking forward to being back with the boys at Portsmouth & get going.’
The injury ruled Green out of last weekend’s trip to Peterborough.
The 20-year-old was withdrawn at half-time of his Pompey league debut against Shrewsbury the previous week.
