Supporters and players of both Norwich City and Shrewsbury Town have rallied round to show their support for young striker Carlton Morris after news of a serious knee injury.
Canaries team-mate James Maddison was among those to offer his support, saying he was 'devastated' to hear that Morris will be out for months after damage to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
The 22-year-old picked up the injury at Wembley on Sunday, as loan club Shrewsbury were beaten 2-1 by Rotherham in the League One play-off final.
He is now set for surgery before learning the length of his rehabilitation but the serious nature of an ACL injury would suggest he is potentially out for the rest of 2018.
Former City team-mates Elliott Bennett and Grant Holt, who have both suffered serious knee injuries themselves in the past, were also among those to offer support.
