The former Nigeria international's injured knee will rule him out of the Great Danes’ bid to finish the season on a high

Vincent Enyeama will not feature again for Lille this season due to injured knee, the French topflight outfit has confirmed.

The goalkeeper ruptured his knee in his side’s 2-0 defeat to Rennes - and was replaced in the 65th minute by Mike Maignan.

And manager Franck Passi told reporters during Thursday’s press conference for Saturday’s game against Montpellier that the 34-year-old is expected to undergo an arthroscopy of the knee that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

Enyeama has featured in 32 French topflight games this term, keeping eight clean slates and conceding 40 goals.
