Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa has undergone successful surgery on his arm in a Turkish hospital.
The Sivasspor of Turkey winger revealed this on his official Instagram field on Wednesday.
He wrote; “I just want to express my heartfelt appreciation to Allah for a successful surgery on my left arm.
“As we all know, no surgery is minor so I’m grateful for the competent doctors assigned to me for a job well done.
“Also to you all, for your messages, prayers and words of encouragement.
“I hope to be back on the field soon stronger and absolutely better.
The injury saw him miss Nigeria’s friendly matches against Algeria B and the Algeria senior team during the September international break.
The injury means Musa will miss Sivasspor’s next top-flight assignment against Hatayspor at Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadı on October 2.
However, he will likely recover and be available when coach Jose Peseiro names the Nigeria squad for their friendly against Portugal on November 17.
