Janmaat had been called up by Holland for their friendlies against France and England.

The 26-year-old now has a fortnight to get himself fit for the relegation-threatened club's visit to Carrow Road.

Meanwhile, midfielder Jack Colback will miss the club's next two games through suspension.

Colback, deputising at left-back, was shown his 10th yellow card of the season in the 1-1 draw.
