Ghana attacker Caleb Ansah Ekuban is expected to sit out for more than a month after suffering an injury in training on Wednesday.

The 25-year old suffered the injury in training after breaking a bone in his left foot following a challenge by Fernandes.

“Our team’s training this evening left foot injury suffered by Caleb Ekuban will be sent for examination, taking X-ray and tomography to be evaluated by the health board. Caleb Ekuban is deemed necessary to undergo surgery,” the club stated on it’s website.

The red-hot forward, who has scored five in seven games already this season will miss the games against Gençlerbirlii, Getafe in the Europa League, Sivasspor and Besiktas.

Ekuban has been in imperious form for Tranzonspor since joining from English Championship side Leeds United.

He joins Abdulkader Omur and Yusuf Sari in the treatment room.

In his absence coach Unal Karaman will be forced to depend former Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge and on-loan Crystal Palace forward Adam Sorloth.
