Florian Lejeune has had two horrendous injuries in his time with Newcastle United.
The first was a serious Cruciate Ligament knee injury that was supposed to rule the Frenchman out for a year, but just five months later he was back in the first team and went on to make 12 appearances last year.
This is another miraculous recovery by a player who has made a significant impression on Tyneside.
Lejeune and Fabian Schar are two of the Toon’s best players with the ball at their feet – their ability to carry the ball out of the defence should allow Newcastle to create more opportunities from inside their own half.
After an awful display on Saturday, this news about Lejeune will be seen as a great boost to the people of Tyneside.
