Borussia Dortmund have confirmed on loan striker Michy Batshuayi has suffered ligament damage to his left ankle and will not play for them again this season.
Batshuayi has been a revelation for Dortmund since joining on loan from Chelsea in January and the Bundesliga side are determined to prolong his stay at the club beyond this season.
The 24-year-old was stretchered off at the end of Dortmund’s 2-0 defeat away to rivals Schalke at the weekend and now the German side have confirmed their worst fears.
Batshuayi will now miss Dortmund’s remaining four league matches and is a big doubt for Belgium ahead of the 2018 World Cup. The Chelsea striker would normally make Roberto Martinez’s squad but now faces a race against time to prove his fitness.
