The Chronicle’s Lee Ryder has just tweeted the following devastating though somewhat expected update on Jetro Willems.
Word from Holland is that Jetro Willems is out for the rest of the season #nufc

When Jetro went down holding his knee on Saturday, it looked to be a serious injury. His reaction alone seemed to indicate that he knew it was a bad one.
The extent of Jetro’s injury is yet to be confirmed, but he has an unfortunate history with knee ligament injuries. He suffered one in April of 2014 as well as July of 2015.
This is some devastating news for the Dutchman whose performances were putting him into the reckoning for this summer’s European Championships.
We just hope that Jetro can get back in time for the beginning of next season, whether Newcastle trigger his permanent clause or not.
When Hatem Ben Arfa was on loan and suffered his broken leg in October of 2010, Newcastle still signed him up permanently the following January.
So hopefully, they’ll do the same with Jetro even though his history of knee injuries will always be a concern.
