Mehdi Nafti has had to endure a frustrating season in 2005-06 after rupturing a cruciate ligament in his knee during a pre-season friendly with Deportivo La Coruna.

The defensive midfielder made a big impression for the Blues at the end of last season following his loan move from Racing Santander.

The deal was then made permanent in a £700,000 switch and the 27-year-old will be hoping to prove himself before the squad is named in May.

Began his career in Toulouse before moving to Spain and his efforts in the 2000-01 season were rewarded with the award for best foreign player.

Injury also meant he missed the World Cup finals four years ago so will be hoping that his run of bad luck does not continue until Germany.
