Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic out for remainder of season

The central defender has only managed six Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund this season. Now Neven Subotic looks likely to miss the remainder of the campaign to a new injury.

Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic is out for the remainder of the season with thrombosis in his arm.

In an announcement from the club on Friday, Dortmund confirmed the central defender would have to train individually and would not be able to take part in contact sport until the condition improved.

"Under the circumstances I am doing relatively well,” the 27-year-old told the club's website. “I can stay fit with individual training and when I have recuperated again I will be in better physical condition than ever before.”

Subotic has struggled for game time at Dortmund this season. After a back injury ruled him out for much of the first half of the campaign, new head coach Thomas Tuchel has preferred the central defensive pairing of Mats Hummels and Sokratis.

As such the defender has been routinely linked with moves away from the former Bundesliga champions. Premier League side Liverpool is a possible destination, according to reports in the English media.
