The defender suffers serious injury setback
Aston Villa left-back Jordan Amavi has been ruled out for the rest of the campaign after picking up an injury on international duty.
The 21-year old ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee whilst representing France under 21s in their 1-0 win over Northern Ireland under 21s on Thursday night.
Amavi joined Villa from Nice in the summer, after the two clubs had agreed an undisclosed fee.
He had previously made 12 appearances for Villa in all competitions this term.
