Newcastle United has released a steaming on their defender Kieran Trippier’s fractured foot. The club said the player suffered a fractured foot in Sunday’s Premier League win over Aston Villa. The England international, a £12m January signing, scored a free-kick in the 1-0 victory at St James’ Park before being replaced in the 48th minute.
Kieran Trippier’s Injury a big blow for Newcastle United
After the game manager Eddie Howe said Trippier “got stamped on”. The club’s stamens on Monday said scans showed a fracture to the fifth metatarsal in his left foot. They said Trippier is “set to be sidelined for the club’s upcoming fixtures” and it did not state the time of the right-back’s return.
31-year-old Kieran Trippier has made a significant impression since joining Atletico Madrid, scoring free-kicks in successive wins over Everton and Aston Villa. Newcastle head coach Howe made him the captain against Aston Villa in the absence of Jamaal Lascelles, who was unwell.
The club has picked up 10 points from the four league matches Trippier has featured in, moving four points clear of the relegation zone.
