Charlton Athletic midfielder Terry Taylor has disclosed that he will need to undergo surgery on his ankle. The midfielder, who joined the club this summer from Burton Albion, sustained the injury during the recent 0-0 draw against Shrewsbury Town. Taylor took to his social media platform, X, to share the update with fans yesterday.
In his message, he stated, “I want to inform all you Addicks supporters that I’ll require surgery on my ankle following last weekend’s injury. It’s not the way I envisioned starting my time here, but I’m committed to working hard during my recovery and returning to the pitch. I’ll be supporting the team alongside all of you until then!”
The 22-year-old has appeared in seven matches across various competitions for Charlton Athletic. It’s worth noting that Taylor had a previous ankle injury that ended his last season prematurely, causing him to miss Burton’s matches from February onward.
Charlton head coach Michael Appleton expressed concerns immediately after the Shrewsbury match, saying, “The initial concern is his ankle, as he rolled it early in the game. He also had a collision knee to knee with one of their players later on, and he experienced significant soreness in a couple of areas. While we’re uncertain about the full extent of the injury, we do know that he will be sidelined for a period of time.”
