MADRID (Reuters) - Sevilla winger Nolito will be sidelined for around three months after breaking his leg in training, the Spanish club said in a statement on Saturday.

“He has suffered a fibula fracture which needs surgery and (he) will miss approximately three months,” Sevilla said in a statement.

Nolito, 32, has only played three league matches this season but scored and provided two assists as Sevilla beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 on Thursday in the Copa del Rey.

Sevilla visit Athletic in La Liga on Sunday as they bid to cut the gap on leaders Barcelona, who host Eibar, to four points.
