Injury updates on Haris Vuckic and Dan Gosling, who were both stretchered off playing for the Under 21s at Aston Villa

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Club Reporter


Newcastle United midfielder Haris Vuckic will be sidelined for the remainder of the season after rupturing his cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The 20-year-old was stretchered off while playing for the Magpies' Under 21 side at Aston Villa on Monday night, following a tackle by Samir Carruthers.

And having been assessed by the Club's medical staff it has been confirmed that Vuckic will not play again during the 2012/13 campaign.

The Slovenian international has appeared three times for Newcastle's first team this season - twice in the Europa League, where he netted his first senior goal for the Club against Atromitos, and also in the Capital One Cup defeat at Manchester United.

Meanwhile it was a double injury blow for United at Villa Park, with fellow midfielder Dan Gosling also stretchered off.

And the former Everton man has been ruled out for a number of weeks after damaging ligaments in his right ankle.
