Borussia Dortmund Michy Batshuayi had his worst fears confirmed as the ankle injury he picked up against Schalke has ended his season prematurely.

Belgium international Batshuayi, who is on loan at Dortmund from Chelsea, was taken off on a stretcher late on in the Ruhr derby defeat, having appeared to roll his ankle.

The 24-year-old tweeted that he probably won’t play again this term and his place in the Belgium World Cup squad must now be in doubt.

He posted: ‘Well its not good news for now, my season is probably over, and I wont be able to pay @BVB back for their confidence.┬áThank you all the amazing amount of love I received since yesterday. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days. See you soon.’

Batshuayi has scored nine times in 14 games since joining Dortmund on loan in the winter transfer window in a deal that runs out at the end of this campaign.

For Belgium, who are in England’s World Cup group, Batshuayi appeared in half of his side’s qualifiers.
