Ghana International, Christian Atsu has undergone knee surgery after completing his permanent move to Newcastle United.
Atsu, 25, joined from Chelsea for a reported £6.2m after spending the season on loan at St James’ Park.
As a consequence the Midfielder was omitted from Ghana’s squad ahead of their African Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia and friendlies against Mexico and the United States in June.
The operation, which was initially reported in Ghana and later by the Shields Gazette, will see the winger sidelined for four weeks which means he’ll be ready for the start of their pre-season training which begins on July 3.
Culled from Squawka
