Castro blow for Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Gonzalo Castro has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in training on Wednesday.
Castro has made 20 Bundesliga appearances for Leverkusen this season, but will play no part in their final five games after sustaining a torn medial meniscus.
The club have confirmed that Castro will go under the knife and Roger Schmidt will be unable to call on the 27-year-old as his side battle to secure a top three finish which would ensure they automatically qualify for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.
The long-serving Castro has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
