Newcastle center-half Florian Lejeune is expected to miss most of the season after suffering an ACL injury.
The French defender will need surgery to repair the cruciate ligament, which could mean a nine-month recovery, after featuring extensively last season for Rafa Benitez. The club recently signed Fabian Schar, but Benitez said the Magpies will need more defensive reinforcements after selling Chancel Mbemba: "The reality is we have lost Lejeune – he has a cruciate ligament injury, so we will lose him for a while. He will need an operation, and he will need some time. We needed a centre-back before [Lejeune's injury] and still we need maybe another one. It's bad news about Lejeune but to see Fabian Schar doing well is important; he will give us this extra option we didn't have." Jul 29 - 4:46 PM
