Star West Coast Eagles midfielder Daniel Kerr has undergone knee surgery which will delay his return to pre-season training until after Christmas.

The 29-year-old underwent an arthroscopy on his right knee to remove a small fragment, the Eagles said in a statement on Monday.

Kerr will be sidelined from training until mid-to-late January as he spends up to three weeks recovering.

The injury is yet another setback for West Coast, who have been training without All-Australian ruckman Nic Naitanui (groin surgery).

Kerr suffered a serious hamstring injury in 2010 but returned to have a strong season in 2011 and was nearing his best this year.

The 2006 premiership player played 24 games this season as the Eagles reached the semi-final, when they lost to Collingwood by 13 points.

Kerr was West Coast's best player against the Magpies in that epic encounter with 29 possessions, of which a whopping 20 were contested.

      Boson we don't need to know about the other parts of his body because it was only his right knee which is injured and now requires surgery.
