Super Eagles defender, Ajayi ruled out for six weeks
The West Bromwich Albion defender, Semi Ajayi, has been ruled out of action for six weeks as a result of a knee injury.
The centre-back sustained the injury in the Baggies' Sky Bet Championship clash against Wigan Athletic.
Ajayi has since undergone surgery and will now spend close to two months on the sidelines.
“Semi has had an operation. We’ve listened to specialists and they’ve advised us that was the best thing to do going forward,” West Brom manager Steve Bruce told a press conference ahead of his side’s clash against Birmingham City.
“We’re expecting him to be out for another six weeks but these things can change.”
Ajayi is now expected to miss Nigeria’s upcoming international friendlies against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.
The game will take place in Oran on Tuesday, September 27.
