Newcastle supporters can breathe a collection sigh of relief following the news that DeAndre Yedlin has not been seriously injured.
The club confirmed on Wednesday that the problem is not considered long-term and the US international is "likely" to resume training with his team-mates "shortly". Although there has been no definitive timeline, the update will be welcomed as fans initially feared Yedlin had suffered the same fate as Florian Lejeune – ruptured ACL – which could have ended his season. Newcastle take on Cardiff City in the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday and Rafa Benitez will consider his options prior to the trip to south Wales. The injury leaves United with only two fully fit out-and-out full-backs – Paul Dummett – and Javier Manquillo, understudy to Yedlin. However, Rafa may look to utilise Jamie Sterry from the under-23s or call Isaac Hayden in from the cold. Frederico Fernandez is another option, as one three centre-halves with Christian Atsu and Matt Ritchie playing as wing-backs. Aug 15 - 12:50 PM
