Beşiktaş midfielder Veli Kavlak will have to undergo yet another shoulder surgery, it will be his third shoulder surgery in half a year.

Veli Kavlak underwent a second shoulder surgery just last month before the beginning of the Germany training camp but now has to undergo yet another shoulder surgery. There had been some complications with his first surgery and Veli had been playing with pain for some time before being sidelined permanently towards the end of last season.

Now the 27-year old Austrian international will have to undergo his third surgery and will be out for atleast another 3 months. A huge blow for the Black Eagles who already lost Tolgay Arslan at the beginning of the pre-season due to an ACL injury which took him out for atleast six months.

Beşiktaş have been in the market for another box-to-box midfielder this summer, but after both the trnasfers of Ozan Tufan and Gökhan Inler did not end in a signature they are still looking for someone to fill the void left by Veli Kavlak and Tolgay Arslan. It is expected for Necip Uysal to start int he starting eleven this weekend against Mersin Idmanyurdu during the opener of the 2015/16 Süper Lig season.
