Craig Bellamy will not require a second operation to cure a troublesome groin, it has been revealed.
whufc.com have confirmed that the Welsh international striker will instead undergo a course of 'intensive personal treatment' in order to cure the long-running problem which has blighted his season.
Alan Curbishley, talking on the club's website, said:
"To operate was the last resort really and the surgeons have agreed that it is not what we need to do.
"It has got to be a lot of hard work, which he is doing now. We have locked him away one on one with a physio and fitness coach to work as hard as he can and to try and recover that way."
There is also good news regarding Julien Faubert and Kieron Dyer, with both expected to return to full training shortly.
