Yacob has yet to return from Argentina where he is dealing with a family emergency, manager Alan Irvine told the Express & Star.

Yacob returned home prior to Monday's game against Manchester United and won't be back for Saturday's fixture with Crystal Palace. “He's not going to be back before this game. We are in contact with him – as much as we can whilst being compassionate as well,” manager Alan Irvine said. Yacob has yet to start a game so far this campaign therefore the news won't have much impact for fantasy managers.

Yacob will miss Monday's game against Man Utd after being granted compassionate leave to return to Argentina, reports the Express and Star.

Yacob has been granted permission to tend to an illness in his family and is expected to return for next Saturday's game against Crystal Palace. The central midfielder has yet to start a Premier League game this season and as such his absence won't be a big one for manager Alan Irvine.

Yacob continues to be sidelined by his hamstring injury and he is not likely to play Saturday against Cardiff City, the club's official web site reports.

Yacob has not played since suffering his injury against Manchester United on March 8, and he could be out for nearly a full month if he's able to return the following weekend at Norwich City. The Argentine midfielder remains a weak fantasy option, with one goal and no assists in 24 appearances this season.
