GINO van Kessel might have played his last game for Oxford United after medical staff assessed the forward's hamstring injury.

The 25-year-old sustained the problem after scoring on international duty for Curacao in a 1-1 draw with Bolivia last month.

Van Kessel, who has netted five times in 23 appearances for United this season, is not due to start training again until next week.

Head coach Karl Robinson feels that raises a doubt over whether he would regain match fitness before the end of the campaign on May 5.

He said: "He’s got a hamstring injury off the back of the game he played while on international duty.

"We’re assessing that, I think he goes outside in the middle of next week maybe and we’ll see where he’s at.

"I’m not too sure if he’ll play again this season, we’ll just have to wait and see.

"I think it was always a four or five-week injury. It’s just part and parcel of football."

Van Kessel is on a season-long loan from Slavia Prague, which contains a clause where United can make the move permanent for a fee of €900,000 (approximately £785,000).

That would represent a club record fee for United, but given the impact the former Ajax youngster has made, it would be a surprise if the option was taken up.
