ASHKAN Dejagah has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
The Fulham midfielder will have an operation next week to repair ankle ligament damage.
Whites boss Martin Jol confirmed the Iranian was set to go under the knife at a press conference this afternoon.
"Ashkan Dejagah needs an operation on his ankle ligament. That will be next week and I think he will be out for the rest of the season," Jol said.
Dejagah injured his ankle in a collision with an advertising hoarding at the start of the month.
