Steve McClaren provided a mixed injury update during the international break as Newcastle continue to struggle with an ever-growing injury list.
First of all the good news as the clubs’ goalkeeping crisis should ease over the coming weeks. Karl Darlow is expected to re-join the main group in training from Monday while Rob Elliot should recover from his ongoing thigh problem after he was omitted from the Republic of Ireland squad. The Newcastle coach also confirmed midfielder Jack Colback could make his return in early December. However, Steven Taylor is unlikely to be back before January while Rolando Aarons’ "is still on crutches so we’re not really sure how long that will take." The winger picked up a training ground ankle injury. Emmanuel Riviere is also close following a number of minor setbacks and niggles "We’re hoping we might get him back into training in the next week or two." Sat, Nov 14, 2015 08:14:00 AM

Emmanuel Riviere will miss the start of the 2015/2016 as he recovers from knee surgery.

A scan revealed the need to operate, so Riviere will be sidelined for at least the opening month of the season. Even if he were fully fit, and even though Newcastle would love as many options as they can be afforded, there was never any real chance of him staking a claim at the striker position, coming off a miserable first season with the club where he didn't score until the final day.

Emmanuel Riviere and Daryl Janmaat have seen both of their moves to Newcastle United confirmed officially.

Newcastle have moved quickly to shore up their sagging roster in the early days of this summer's transfer window. They officially lost Mathieu Debuchy today but replaced him almost immediately with Dutch international Daryl Janmaat in a move that sees the Magpies get significantly younger at the right back position. Riviere joins, Siem De Jong and Remy Cabella in what promises to be a new-look attack for Alan Pardew. With rumors of Clement Grenier possibly on his way, things are certainly looking up for the Newcastle faithful after the first 6 months of the year verged on utter disaster.
