Trippier was substituted in the game after he suffered injury and will miss games for Newcastle.

Speaking with the media Howe confirmed that the operation went well but doesn’t know when the 31-year-old will be back.

“He has his operation yesterday and that went well, so that was good news. I don’t know at this moment in time how long he’s going to be out”, Howe said.

“We hope to have him back before the end of the season, but it’s obviously a significant injury, which is a big blow to us because he was performing so well.”

Trippier has made a huge impact since his arrival at St James’ Park, scoring in each of his last two league games and bringing new leadership to the relegation-threatened club.

Pressed on how long he could be missing, Howe added: “We hope to see him before the end of the season, but in terms of a definitive time, no. We’re going to have to see how his early rehab goes.

“As I said, the operation was a success, but it’s an opportunity now for someone else to step up in his place.

“But sadly, we’re going to miss his leadership skills on the pitch and everything that he was delivering for us. He’s scored two goals in the last two games which have been defining moments for us, but we’re confident we have enough quality in the squad to cover.”
