New York City FC midfielder Keaton Parks will undergo surgery to remove a blood clot from his popliteal artery in his lower right leg, the team announced Wednesday.
Parks, 24, underwent the same procedure in November.
“First and foremost, Keaton’s health is our priority and on behalf of everyone at the club, I’d like to wish him all the best for the surgery and his recovery,” NYCFC sporting director David Lee said. “We’re obviously extremely disappointed to lose a player of his quality.
“… We have an incredible medical staff here and Keaton will receive the best possible treatment during his recovery. We do not yet have a specific timeline on when he will be available and will be guided by his progression through his rehab, but we are confident he will make a full recovery and are looking forward to having him back with the group.”
Parks has collected two goals and two assists in 14 matches (11 starts) this season.
He has 10 goals and seven assists in 90 career matches (73 starts) with NYCFC.
