Lejeune - Surgery went well
Newcastle centre-back Florian Lejeune has announced his operation has been a success after he went under the knife in Italy.
The Frenchman is set to be on the sidelines until October after suffering another knee injury during the 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace.
Lejuene has been plagued by injuries this season after injuring his other knee in pre-season. He was ruled out for five months before returning and making 12 appearances in the top flight.
The 27-year-old is now set to undergo an intense rehabilitation programme but has reassured fans after he travelled to Italy.
He posted on social media: "My operation went well, now it's time to be patient, work hard and come back stronger."
