Senegal international Cheikh N’Doye is a big injury doubt for this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after undergoing knee surgery.

The 33-year old midfielder, currently on loan at French Ligue 1 club Angers from Birmingham City, suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament injury during Senegal’s win over Mali in a friendly international on 26 March.

It was initially thought to be just a sprain and he was an unused substitute in Angers’ 2-2 draw at Marseille in the French league four days later.

Angers have confirmed that N’Doye’s knee operation has taken place.

“On Thursday, April 25, our vice captain Sheikh Ndoye had surgery in Lyon. The intervention went very well for the Senegalese international,” Angers said in a statement.
