London: Hull City`s new midfielder Robert Snodgrass will be out of action for up to six months due to a dislocated kneecap, the Premier League club announced via Twitter on Wednesday.
"(Manager) Steve Bruce has revealed Robert Snodgrass could be out for up to six months with a dislocated knee cap," Hull said. "Everyone at the club would like to wish @robsnodgrass7 a speedy recovery."
A £7 million ($11.7 million, 8.8 million euros) close-season signing from Norwich City, 26-year-old Snodgrass injured his knee in the first half of Hull`s 1-0 league win at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
The Scotland international wrote on Twitter: "Gutted ....!!! But I will work as hard as I can to come back fitter and stronger."
Hull, runners-up in last season`s FA Cup final, visit Belgian side Lokeren on Thursday for the first leg of a Europa League play-off tie.
