Great News – DeAndre Yedlin Injury Is Not Serious

Newcastle have just announced that DeAndre Yedlin’s knee injury is not serious with the player having undergone some scans on his injured right knee.

Rafa Benitez has been worried that he does not have enough cover at fullback when we couldn’t bring one in over the summer transfer window.

We had both fullbacks Jesus Gamez and Massadio Haidara leave the club in the summer and neither was replaced.

And we now have to hope that through the end of the year we don’t get too many serious injuries with Florin Lejeune already out for many months with his knee injury.

Hopefully, Rafa will be allowed to bring in a good fullback in January.

DeAndre Yedlin getting treatment on the pitch last Saturday

This is what the club have just announced on their website:

The club can confirm that the knee injury sustained by DeAndre Yedlin on Saturday was not serious.

The USA international defender limped off towards the end of United’s season opener against Tottenham Hotspur.

However, he has been assessed and undergone treatment this week and is likely to resume training with his team-mates shortly.

We would be very surprised if DeAndre starts the game on Saturday at Cardiff City, and it will be interesting to see what Rafa says during his press conference on Friday.

Although the manager may talk about the American’s availability before then.

Yedlin did not have a good game defensively last Saturday, and Rafa may try new signing Federico Fernandez at right back – or Isaac Hayden who can also play in that position.

Comments welcome.

    We know you do not give too much info – because you don’t know any.

    Great news on DeAndre. This weekend may be a little too soon, even if the injury isn’t serious the knee will still be weak you’d think.

    Seeing it is a bit quiet thought I’d introduce a blog competition.
    It is just a simple guess who quiz.

    Graham ,
    From earlier
    Thanks for the link to that true faith podcast.
    Those rangers lads were bang on.
    They warned how much ash had done to damage them when having only a 10 % stake so how much hidden damage do you think he is doing when he owns 100%?
    Other take they mentioned about Newcastle fans is they just didn’t understand the apathy among Geordies towards this guy .
    They got their club back but not sure any of these groups ( Nufc) really have the fight .
    Well worth a listen to anyone who hasn’t yet .
