"Amiens SC wishes to express its full support to Bongani Zungu, victim this Sunday against Saint-Etienne of a serious sprained knee with involvement of the anterior cruciate ligament. He will be unavailable for several months," reads a statement on Amiens SC's website.
According to the statement released by the club, the French Ligue1 outfit negotiations between the two parties are already underway over a new deal.
“The club wishes to express its confidence in Bongani, and is currently negotiating an extension of (the) contract with him,” added the club on its website.
The 25-year-old Bafana Bafana midfielder has been a key player for Amiens since making his move from Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes last year.
Zungu's massive contribution for Amiens helped the side avoid relegation to the French Ligue 2 division, and has been praised for providing steel in their midfield.
Moreover, the Duduza-born player is out of Stuart Baxter's Bafana squad that is set to face Libya in a crucial 2019 Caf African Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday due to injury.
Reports suggest the ex-University of Pretoria player could return to action in 2019, although nothing has been confirmed as he's set to see a specialist in the next few days.
