Forser will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery Wednesday to repair a torn left patellar tendon, the club's official website reports.

While the club stated that a further return date wouldn't be made until post-op swelling goes down, it is widely believed that Forster could miss 9-to-12 months, which would not only rule him out for all of this season, but most of next season as well. With Artur Boruc currently on loan at Bournemouth, Kelvin Davis will get the starts in Forster's place.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman said after Saturday's game that the knee injury Forster suffered in the first half could be serious, the Daily Mirror reports. "Fraser Forster is at the hospital and it is looking bad," Koeman said. "We have to wait for the scan. I hope it will be okay for him but the doctor is not positive."

Forster leads the Premier League in clean sheets this season and his absence would be a massive blow to a Saints side still in competition for a European spot. Kelvin Davis replaced Forster after he was stretchered off Saturday, and he will start in his place if Forster is unable to return after the international break.

Forster failed to record a save during Sunday's 1-0 loss at home to Swansea City.

Forster was beaten by Swansea's only shot on goal Sunday, which spoiled the Englishman's favorable clean sheet opportunity. Nonetheless, Forster still leads the Premier League with 10 clean sheets to his name and his 44 saves have provided a bit of extra value.
