The Danish international is to jet off to see renowned surgeon Dr Richard Steadman in Colorado in a bid to get to the root of the problem and to determine whether surgery is required.
Laursen told PA Sport: "The injury has been particularly annoying because I believe I can be a big success in England. The way I play is suited to English football, being good in the air and physically strong. I am so frustrated. I think I have a lot to offer and I want to show people what I am capable of."
