Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is facing several months on the sidelines following an operation on a fractured kneecap.

The Senegalese frontman sustained the injury during Newcastle's 2-1 home defeat by Swansea last month, ending his season, and the 28-year-old travelled to Paris for surgery on Thursday.

A statement on the club's official website said: "He is expected to be sidelined for a number of months."
