Newcastle: Haris Vuckic ruled out for the season
Newcastle midfielder Haris Vuckic has been ruled out for the season after he ruptured a cruciate ligament.
The Slovenia international, 20, was withdrawn after a challenge with Aston Villa midfielder Samir Carruthers in Monday's 1-0 reserve team victory.
Vuckic had made three first-team appearances for the Magpies this season, scoring one goal.
Meanwhile fellow midfielder Dan Gosling is also ruled out for up to a month with ankle ligament damage.
