Unwanted Birmingham City midfielder Cheikh N’Doye has been ruled out of action for the remainder of the season after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury according to reports from Birmingham Live.
The 33-year-old midfielder joined former club Angers SCO on a season-long loan deal in August with Birmingham City looking to reduce their wage bill to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.
N’Doye has featured heavily for the French club throughout the current campaign, however, it has now been reported that the player has sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury which will see him sidelined for the remainder of the season and possibly much of what is left of 2019.
Birmingham City signed N’Doye on a free transfer in summer 2017 and the midfielder has gone on to make 42 appearances for the Blues. The Senegalese international is out of contract at St Andrews in the summer and is not expected to extend his stay at the Sky Bet Championship club.
After starting his career in the lower reaches of the French game with Epinal and Creteil, N’Doye’s career took off during two years in Ligue 1 with Angers. The midfielder opted against extending his contract at the Stade Raymond Kopa in favour of a move to Birmingham City but N’Doye could rejoin Les Scoistes on a permanent deal once he proves his fitness to head coach Stephane Moulin.
