Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett will miss Wales' Euro 2016 qualifier away to Israel on 28 March.

Unbeaten Wales are just one point behind Group B leaders Israel.

Dummett, 23, suffered a knee injury in Newcastle's 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday and could miss the rest of the season.

"The good news is Paul Dummett doesn't need an operation, but he is out for around 10-12 weeks," said Newcastle boss John Carver.
