Schalke winger Julian Draxler out until 2015 with thigh injury

Schalke 04 playmaker Julian Draxler has been ruled out until the new year in order to undergo surgery on his torn hamstring, the club announced on Twitter.

The 21-year-old Germany international picked up the injury during the club’s 1-0 win against Augsburg last Friday, meaning he will not return until after the winter break at the earliest.

The injury is a huge blow to Schalke boss Roberto Di Matteo, whose side currently sit eighth in the Bundesliga table and are struggling to qualify for the knockout stage in the Champions League.

Draxler has scored twice in eight Bundesliga appearances for Schalke this season.
