Stuttgart's Dutch defender Khalid Boulahrouz is set to miss the next four weeks after breaking his big toe in training today, his German league club have announced.

The 30-year-old, who has made 21 Bundesliga appearances and scored two goals this season, broke the toe on his left foot after a collision with teammate Christian Genter.

"It's obviously very disappointing, but I will focus on rehabilitation and work hard to return," said the Netherlands star who has made over 30 appearances for the Oranje.

Stuttgart are unbeaten in their last four games and have climbed to eighth in the league. They are just three points from a UEFA Europa League place for next season and will host Nuremberg on Sunday.
