The Hague, Sep 13 (IANS) Ajax will be without striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson for at least another four months due to a shoulder injury, the Amsterdam based club announced Thursday.

The 22-year-old Icelandic striker has had problems with his shoulder in the past and recently dislocated his left shoulder again, reports Xinhua.

After intensive investigation club and player decided for a rest period, but little progress was made in the past period.

Sigthorsson, who came over from AZ in 2011, already missed the majority of last season due to a fatigue fracture in his ankle.

He only played nineteen of the 51 games he could have played for Ajax.

As a replacement coach Frank de Boer opted for Siem de Jong as central striker this season, although the latter prefers to play as a midfielder.

Ryan Babel, who came over from Hoffenheim in August, is the other alternative.
