Fulham have flown midfielder Lasse Vigen Christensen to Germany for treatment on a troublesome hamstring injury.

The Whites midfielder has been in the wars with setbacks to hamstrings on both legs that saw him miss a cluster of games since the New Year.

The Danish U21 international limped off just before half time in the 2-0 win over Derby two weeks ago, and the manager admits the 20-year-old is a miss they could do without against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Kit Symons added: “He’s over in Germany getting some treatment at the moment, and he’s not close at all (to a return).”
