Imoh Ezekiel’s season has come to an end after the Nigerian broke his jaw in Nigeria U-23 0-1 win over Brazil in a friendly game just over a week ago.
Ezekiel had surgery on the broken jaw on Wednesday and is reportedly set to miss the league title playoffs in Belgium for his loan side Anderlecht.
The injury setback is the latest disappointment the 22 year old has suffered since joining Anderlecht on loan from Al-Arabi of Qatar at the start of the season.
So far he has just one goal in the league from the 18 games he has played for them his worst tally in a full season since he moved to Europe in 2012.
His next destination will be decided by his Qatari side Al-Arabi who have kept him on loan the last 18 months after he failed to settle in Qatar six months after moving to the oil rich nation from Standard Liege of Belgium.
He reportedly turned down a move to a Chinese Super League side before the close of the transfer window in China.
