Max Clayton is unlikely to play again this season, after undergoing surgery on a torn hamstring that is expected to keep him sidelined for four months.

Clayton suffered the blow shortly before half-time during Bolton's 1-1 draw against Brentford last Monday and was promptly sent to see specialists to discover the extent of the problem.

The 20-year-old has since gone under the knife, with the rehabilitation process likely to keep him occupied until mid-April.

Clayton has endured miserable luck on the injury front since joining Wanderers from Crewe Alexandra in September 2014. In December of that year, he ruptured knee ligaments and only returned to first-team duty in September.

In total, Clayton has featured just 17 times during his 15 months at Macron Stadium. He is contracted to the club until the summer of 2017.
