Santon's timetable for return from an offseason knee operation has been extended into mid-November after more damage was discovered during surgery, the Shields Gazette reports.

Santon, when healthy, would be manager Alan Pardew's first choice left back, but will be sidelined for quite some time after complications with his knee surgery. Currently, Paul Dummett is the first team starter at left back.
