Middlesbrough winger Viktor Fischer out for three weeks with injury

Middlesbrough winger Viktor Fischer will miss the club's festive programme after suffering a knee injury during Saturday's win over Swansea.

Head coach Aitor Karanka said the 22-year-old would be sidelined for up to three weeks.

"He's a good lad and an important player in the changing room," the manager told the club's official website.

"We have to keep supporting him as he is a player who was taking his chance."

Denmark international Fischer, a £3.8 million summer signing from Ajax, has started the last four Premier League games.

Boro travel to Burnley and Manchester United over Christmas and entertain Leicester.
