Next Step For Longstaff – To See A Specialist – Scan Results Should Now Be Available


Sean Longstaff had a scan on his knee injury yesterday, and the chances are that the Newcastle medics will now have the results of that scan.

So it seems to make sense that Sean will see a knee specialist tomorrow as the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder is reporting.

We hope the knee ligaments aren’t damaged because that will mean a long time out for the 21-year-old – maybe even the rest of the season in the worst case scenario.

But the most important thing now is to get the best possible treatment for the impressive youngster.

Sean Longstaff – to see a knee specialist tomorrow

And since Rafa came on board just less than three years ago, the club have done well in getting players fit again after injuries and also reducing the number of injuries we have in the squad.

It’s just one of the many improvements Rafa has already made at Newcastle.

This is the tweet Lee Ryder sent out today:

The youngster will also miss out on a possible first England U21 cap because of the injury.

We should get an update on Sean from Rafa in his press conference on Friday for the home game on Saturday.

But the midfielder will not be rushed back, and there’s unlikely to be any timescale put on his return to the side.

Even if Sean is not fit for the rest of the season, we have Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Ki Sung-yueng, and Mohamed Diame all available to do the central midfield duties.

Should Newcastle Sell Shelvey for £20M This Summer?

    It’s looking like NUFC is off the market because one of the four interested parties has had their offer accepted !

    Jib, you’re not allowed to come on here with hope and aspiration. Get out and only come back when you’ve got some good, old fashioned doom and gloom.

    You with your fancy ways!

    Sheesh!

    d, good to hear that you’re getting some good results after a bad start – something Newcastle fans know about !
    Your fortitude is admirable.

    More importantly lads of a certain age go get checked out and ask – demand PSA testing so that you’re ahead of the Prostate cancer risk.
    I was fortunate as mine was caught early partly as a result of another illness and symptoms but this is a one in four illness but one that can be treated and in different ways depending on diagnosis.
    Medical facilities at the Freeman are world class with leading medical and nursing and support staff so make sure for the right reasons that you don’t have to increase their work load. If you do your in safe hands.

    Great news Ed, always good to hear. While we’re on the subject of spreading a message I got skin cancer cut out of my nose when in my early thirties in Oz, it was cut out because I didn’t get it checked when something was obviously not looking right, could have been lasered instead or much worse if I’d have continued to ignore it. Another blemish has appeared which might be absolutely nothing hence to say i won’t be messing around getting a check up this time . So the moral of the story is, if in doubt get straight to the doctor, that’s what they’re there for.

    Jib,
    It’s the wrong time of year for such stories….the fakeover PR campaigns always start in last 3 months of the year!

    Ed,
    Great news from your test results!

    While I wouldn’t expect you to give up your source Jib, is it someone reliable and how are they connected? IE is it via the club, Ashley or the buyer?

    Late to the party again I know, but re: selling Jonjo for 20M in the summer: I only voted “No” because there was no box to check saying “Hell No”.

    Good news about your test results, Ed!! Having been in that situation myself, having doctors and nurses as well as support people helped more than I could have imagined.
    As far as the injury to Longstaff, if it is serious, would they still think of off-loading Shelvey? To me, it would depend on the extent of Sean’s injury. I want Rafa to get Shelvey on the pitch, since I think he’s chomping at the bit to get back to his best.
