Ipswich Town midfielder Idris El Mizouni, who is on loan at League One side Leyton Orient, has suffered a potentially season-ending injury.

O's manager Richie Wellens confirmed the 23-year-old suffered a suspected MCL injury in their 1-0 defeat at Lincoln City on Good Friday.  

He said: "We think it's a MCL injury, so he's likely to be out for two to three months, which coming to the end of the season it's not too bad for him." 

El Mziouni is in his second season on loan at Brisbane Road and has played a starring role at Orient over the last 18 months, helping them secure the League Two title last season.
