Aston Villa midfielder Boubacar Kamara (24) is facing eight months out after undergoing knee surgery in his native France, a medical source revealed on Friday.

The Frenchman tore the anterior cruciate ligament on his right knee in his Premier League side’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United this month.

The operation took place in Lyon.

The injury will keep him sidelined for the rest of the Premier League season, and Euro 2024 in Germany in June-July.

Kamara’s misfortune is a major blow to the France international and to Villa.

He has been a major part of the club’s revival under Unai Emery since joining on a free transfer from Marseille in 2022.

Kamara will have to watch from the sidelines as his side try to get Champions League Football to Villa Park next season.

Emery’s men sit fourth in the Premier League, two points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham.
