Ipswich Town are hopeful Alan Judge’s broken wrist will have minimal impact on the Irishman’s pre-season preparations.
The 30-year-old is due to undergo surgery today after suffering the injury in the final seconds of the Republic of Ireland's 1-1 draw in Denmark on Friday night.
Judge is likely to be given additional time off due to his international commitments, meaning he is likely to report for training later than his team-mates who return on June 24.
But Town physio Matt Byard believes the injury will have little impact on his preparations for the new season.
"We are hoping his injury won't have too much impact on pre-season for Judgey," Byard told the club website.
"It's likely that he will have to avoid contact for the first few weeks but we will see how it goes."
Judge is hopeful of attending Ireland's Euro 2020 qualifier against Gibraltar in Dublin this evening.
