Newcastle midfielder Siem de Jong is at risk of missing the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to correct a chest problem which led to the summer signing suffering a collapsed lung.
De Jong was nearing a return to full fitness having spent the last five months recovering from a ruptured thigh muscle and had been involved for the under-21 development squad in recent games. However the player was absent from the side which took on Arsenal at St James’ Park on Monday evening and there were suggestions that the Dutchman could be added to the group for the trip to Selhurst Park in GW25. But in a statement released by the club they confirmed Siem de Jong had undergone a procedure to correct a lung complaint which should prevent any future recurrence - the original problem occurred whilst at Ajax back in 2013. This latest setback will keep the player out for at least the next eight weeks. Feb 11 - 5:58 AM
