The Ghana international has been ruled out of the season due to an ankle injury he sustained last weekend against Manchester City.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Jeffrey Schlupp will not be available to him for the remainder of the season due to injury.
Schlupp, who can play in defence or in midfield, has featured 37 times for the Eagles so far this season in all competitions, scoring five goals.
“We have been a little bit unlucky in this latter period,” Hodgson said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Palace’s game against Arsenal on Sunday
“It started with Mamadou [Sakho], then we lost James [Tomkins] and now we’ve lost Jeff [Schlupp], which is of course three big blows for us.
“He won’t play again this season, the ankle injury is such that it will take the three or so weeks we have left [to heal]. “Fortunately, we don’t have quite so many other injuries to deal with but we are getting down to our bare bones, but I guess we aren’t along in that respect, late in the season teams do get depleted.
“The worst thing with these things is it always happens to players in the same positions, we are certainly stretched at the moment in our defensive positions, we have been depleted in midfield and up front at the moment, fortunately, we do have competition for places.”
Schlupp looks likely to miss the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Egypt
