Kanu was acidentally caught by a teammate during a practice session on Friday and was due to see a specialist for a firm diagnosis yesterday (December 16).

Kanu was due to play in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Bolton at the Weston Homes Stadium after impressing on his return to the starting line-up the previous weekend in Portsmouth.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony tweeted: “Looks a bad one & possible season-ending depending on vision and scope of eye socket fracture. Gutted for him.”
