West Ham United midfielder Valon Behrami has confirmed he will miss the remainder of the season through injury.
Switzerland international Behrami was stretchered off in last Sunday's 1-0 win over Manchester City after twisting his ankle and knee.
The full extent of the injury is still not known, although tests have revealed the 23-year-old did not suffer a break or fracture.
Behrami, though, expects to miss the rest of the term, as he awaits the results of a further scan that will determine whether he needs surgery.
He told Blick: "The season has gone for me. I must now wait 48 hours until I know whether or not cruciate ligament surgery is required. Bad, very bad."
