Massadio Haidara is out for the season as John Carver confirmed that he had surgery on his knee in Lyon last Thursday, and Jak Alnwick’s career at Newcastle is over, as he tweeted today that he has sustained a wrist injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season.
Massadio Haidara – will return for pre-season
In his news conference today for the Sunderland game, John Carver confirmed that Massadio had surgery on his knee last Thursday.
The young Frenchman injured his knee in the last win we had – the 1-0 home win against Aston Villa back on 28th February.
This is what Carver said today:
“Sadio Haidara had a cyst taken off his knee last Thursday in France, and he won’t be available for the rest of the season.”
Massadio’s surgery was well publicized last week in France and we suppose it’s now official with John’s announcement.
And Jak Alnwick’s Newcastle career is over, after he injured his wrist and will have surgery on it soon – but his loan spell at Bradford City.
Jak Alnwick playing for the Newcastle first team this season
This is what Jak tweeted today:
“Unfortunately my season is over. On route to Manchester to get wrist surgery.” “Looking forward to a new challenge next season.”
Jak joined Newcastle from Sunderland back in 2008 as a 14 year-old, and he came through the Newcastle Youth Academy, and played for the England U17 and U18 sides.
The 21 year-old played 8 times for the Newcastle first team this season, after he was thrown in at the deep end in the second half of the home game against Chelsea.
That’s when Rob Elliott injured his thigh just before half time, and Tim Krul was already out injured, so in came Jak for the second half and we won that game 2-1 to break Chelsea’s unbeaten streak since the previous April.
The Hexham-born goalkeeper’s contract runs out at the end of June and at that time he will become a free agent.
We wish Jak all the best in his future career in football.
