Newcastle boss Howe unsure of Trippier return

Newcastle are unsure whether defender Kieran Trippier will return before the end of the season following foot surgery, says boss Eddie Howe.

The England international broke his foot in the 1-0 win against Aston Villa on Sunday, having scored the only goal.

Trippier, who joined from Atletico Madrid for £12m in the January transfer window, also scored a free-kick in the victory over Everton on 8 February.

Howe said Trippier's operation on Thursday "went well".

"That was good news, but I don't know how long he's going to be out," he added.

"We hope to have him back before the end of the season, but it's obviously a significant injury, which is a big blow to us because he was performing so well.

"We're going to have to see how his early rehab goes."
