Ousmane Dembele has returned to Barcelona after undergoing surgery on a torn hamstring.

The France international travelled to Helsinki for an operation on the injury, which he suffered on his full league debut for the club against Getafe on Saturday.

He is expected to be out for up to four months, though there has been talk of him returning earlier.

Dembele joined Barca from Borussia Dortmund last month after Neymar left Camp Nou to join Paris Saint-Germain. Barca paid EUR105million plus a reported EUR40m in add ons to sign Dembele.
