Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi, on loan from Chelsea at Borussia Dortmund, will miss the final four games of the Bundesliga season after injuring his ankle against Schalke at the weekend.

Batshuayi now faces a race to be fit for the World Cup, too, after confirming his injury on social media on Monday. 

"Well its not good news for now, my season is probably over, and i wont be able to pay BVB back for their confidence," wrote Batshuayi, who joined the club in January following the sale of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal. 

He added: "Thank you all the amazing amount of love I received since yesterday. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days. See you soon."

The 24-year-old had scored seven goals in nine Bundesliga starts and leaves Dortmund fourth in the table as they fight to earn a Champions League spot.
