February 17, 2018 - 15:52

Iranian international midfielder Ashkan Dejagah will be sidelined for six to eight weeks due to a foot injury, according to his agent Reza Fazeli.

Dejagah suffered the injury during the Nottingham Forest’s training last week, Fazeli said.

The 31-year-old midfielder has undergone surgery and could be sidelined for two months.

Dejagah will likely miss the 2018 World Cup.

The ex-Fulham star joined Nottingham on Jan. 31 and played against his former club on Feb. 3 at the Craven Cottage as a substitute.

Last week, Iran coach Carlos Queiroz announced via his Facebook account that Team Melli’s captain has undergone surgery.
