Ugo Ehiogu eye operation (13 Feb)
Aston Villa central defender Ugo Ehiogu is to have surgery after fracturing his eye socket against  Newcastle United last month. 

 He needs an operation to release the eye muscles in the fractured socket. The former England  international was injured in a challenge with Alan Shearer during Villa's 2-1 defeat at St James'  Park. 

 Villa physiotherapist Jim Walker said: ``While Ugo has been able to stay fit, he needs the surgery  to release the eye muscles. 

 ``The injury means that he has been unable to move the eye and he has also suffered from double  vision.''
