Sky Sports News is reporting that Newcastle central midfielder Haris Vuckic is out for the season.
Haris Vuckic – out for the season
That’s according to his Slovenia Under-21 coach Tomaz Kavcic, and it follows the 19 year-old 6’3″ central midfielder being recalled to Newcastle, from his loan spell at Cardiff City recently.
Nothing yet from Newcastle on this, but coach Kavcic had this to say about the top young Slovenian:
“I can confirm that Vukic is out for the season – he injured his knee.” “What can we do? Nothing, we will have to find a replacement for him.”
“But of course it won’t be easy, he is a great player and a leader of our team.”
There’s only five games to go for Newcastle this season, so hopefully injuries will not be a problem and Haris has already missed the last couple of games with the knee problem.
The next Newcastle game is a week on Saturday against Stoke at St. James’ Park and we are even hoping that both Cheick Tiote and Danny Guthrie will be fit by then.
Vuckic made 5 appearances for the Newcastle first team this season, and he also made his full Slovenian debut on 29th February of this year, when he replaced Valter Birsa after 62 minutes in the match with Scotland and looked good.
While at Cardiff City on loan he appeared five times with one goal for the South Wales side.
