Borussia Dortmund's Germany international midfielder Ilkay Gündogan has suffered a dislocated kneecap in training and will miss the rest of the Bundesliga season, as well as UEFA EURO 2016 in France.
The 25-year-old has made 25 Bundesliga appearances this season and scored one goal to help Dortmund to second place in the league, where they sit .
Borussia retain an outside chance of winning the Bundesliga title, while they also face Bayern in the final of the DFB Cup on 21 May, but Gündogan, who missed almost the entirety of the 2013/14 campaign with injury, will play no further part in his team's hunt for domestic glory.
His absence is also a major blow to Germany coach Joachim Löw, for whom Gündogan was a starter in four of the reigning world champions' last five EURO 2016 qualifiers and earned the last of his 16 caps in a 2-0 friendly defeat to France last November.
Germany begin their EURO 2016 campaign against Ukraine in Lille on June 12, before further games in Group C against Poland and Northern Ireland.
