Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot took to social media to confirm he would be going under the knife after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in a friendly international last week.
Elliot posted an update on Twitter which said: ‘Operation day!! Have ordered one new ACL replacement from the menu for a right knee.’ The Republic of Ireland stopper is expected to miss between 6-9 months and with it his hopes of appearing at this summers’ European Championships in France. His absence could open the door for former United stopper Shay Given who has missed the majority of the campaign with a serious knee injury. The 39-year-old is yet to play in the Premier League but after England No.2 Jack Butland suffered a fractured ankle, Given may get a chance to impress manager Martin O’Neil to earn himself an unlikely call-up.
