The news is a major blow for the highly-rated defender having just recovered from a serious injury which ruled him out for most of last season.
The 18-year-old was making his comeback in Sunday's 2-2 draw at home to NAC Breda coming off the bench to replace Christian Chivu, but his joy was short-lived after picking up this new injury.
Tests have shown that the Dutch Under-21 international has suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury which is expected to rule him for out eight months.
