He is likely to be sidelined until December.

The Town striker, who scored 11 goals last season, also underwent a second surgery on a groin injury in February.

A spokesman for Ipswich Town said: “We are aware of James’ situation. A charge of drink-driving is clearly a serious matter but the club will not be commenting further until the case has been concluded.”
