Newcastle winger Sylvain Marveaux is likely to be sidelined for up to four months after having surgery in the United States.
Marveaux, who was injured in the 2-1 win over Everton on 5th November, had an operation on his right hip and groin on Monday.
The 25-year-old will return to Newcastle next week to undergo an intensive rehabilitation programme.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said: "Marveaux had a successful operation in America, so we are really pleased about that, and we think that will be three to four months - perhaps four months."
