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.

Of course this wouldn't be big news save for Fulham's having two matches this fantasy gameweek. So of course we're paying very close attention.

Last week Bulgarian defender Stanislav Manolev got the nod on the left wing and did just about as well as Dejagah ever did. Which is to say, not great. But a cheap defender, playing in midfield for a team with two matches? That's enough to qualify him for must-have status in my book.

There is the chance that we'll see Kerim Frei or Kieran Richardson get the nod - both were on the bench last weekend against Newcastle - so keep an eye on the team news. But Manolev is the incumbent in my book.

Elsewhere, Fulham have a question about the availability of Eyong Enoh.

Fulham sweat on Enoh injury for Aston Villa trip - Fulham - London24

Fulham manager Martin Jol is waiting to discover whether Cameroon international Eyong Enoh will be fit for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Aston Villa.

The midfielder limped off in the west Londoners’ defeat at Newcastle last week.

Jol said: “We will do an assesment tomorrow. He could probably play but we are not sure yet.”

Steve Sidwell is banned for both matches this week, so if Enoh isn't available we could see Emmanuel Frimpong, who deputized at the weekend when Enoh came off, or maybe we'll see a first-team return for Chris Baird. Stranger things have happened.
