Schalke 04 coach David Wagner says Matija Nastasic will not be fit in time to feature in Sunday's Bundesliga game against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Wagner also revealed that Mark Uth will be out until 2020.

"Matija Nastasic won't be able to play. Also, Mark Uth will not be able to feature in the next three games. Everyone else is fit, except from our long-term injuries," Wagner told reporters.

"'Benji' Stambouli is back in running training, but he won't be an option for Frankfurt. We'll see how his situation develops. He's making good progress," he added.

With Nastasic out, Weston McKennie is expected to play alongside Ozan Kabak in the central defense.
