Dutch side Utrecht have confirmed that right back Tim Cornelisse will be out for the rest of the season.

Cornelisse broke his kneecap during the league game with Groningen on December 11.

The player is to undergo an operation on the kneecap next week in a bid to be fit for the start of next season.

Club doctor Frank van Hellemondt told the club's website: "We don't have the expectation anymore that it will heel itself, that's why we will operate."

Cornelisse has been at the club since 2004 and has made 13 league appearances this season.
