AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong is set to miss the rest of the season after rupturing his left Achilles during Sunday's 4-2 win over Torino.

The 28-year-old Holland international was stretchered off just 22 minutes into the Serie A match after falling awkwardly, with the club later confirming the seriousness of the injury.

"A bittersweet Sunday," club vice-president Adriano Galliani told the club's official website. "De Jong's tendon has snapped and that means the season is over for him. It's a big loss for the team and takes the shine off the win."

De Jong was a summer signing from Manchester City and has made 15 appearances for the Rossoneri.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
