Newcastle United can confirm that striker Papiss Cisse underwent an operation on a fractured patella on Thursday.

The Senegalese forward suffered the injury during the Magpies' home game against Swansea City last month, and travelled to Paris for the operation earlier this week.

Cisse, aged 28, will spend his rehabilitation period at the Clairefontaine Medical Centre before returning to Tyneside to be further assessed by the Club's medical staff.

He is expected to be sidelined for a number of months.
