It looks like Sean is recovering well from his injury and is on track to be back on at least light training when the squad report in early July.
The initial estimate for his injury lay off was four months and that would be the first week of July. So it appears that the initial reports were correct and that Sean is progressing as expected.

It would be a bonus if Sean can get into the first preseason match against Wolves in the Premier League Asia Trophy on July 17th.
A full preseason would be excellent for the youngster. And judging from his recent comments he appears to be raring to get back on the pitch for Newcastle.
A few days ago the club tweeted this snippet from his full interview on NUFC TV.
