Haidara will miss the rest of the season after having knee surgery in Lyon on Thursday, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.

Haidara suffered the injury Feb. 28 against Aston Villa, and he was initially only expected to miss two weeks. However, additional scans showed the full extent of the injury, and the 22-year-old will be unable to contribute again this season.

Haidara picked up an assist and a clean sheet during Newcastle's 3-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Haidara was a heavy contributor to the shutout, finishing the match with two tackles, five interceptions and five clearances. It was a solid performance after losing back to back matches to Chelsea and Southampton, and Newcastle will look to keep the defensive streak going next Sunday against Stoke City.

Haidara started Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Manchester City but was replaced at halftime after suffering what is believed to be a hamstring injury, the Shields Gazette reports.

Haidara made his season debut in Wednesday's match after being an unused substitute in last weekend's match against Sunderland. The severity of the injury wasn't immediately known but it would be very surprising to see him play this Saturday against Chelsea.

Haidara will compete in Newcastle's U-21 match against Fulham on Friday, as he works his way back from a knee injury.

Haidara hasn't played this season due to the injury but it's very encouraging that he's made his way back to match availability, even if it's just with the U-21 team.

Haidara has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury, the Shields Gazette reports.

Haidara originally injured his knee last March after getting caught on a challenge from Wigan's Callum McMananman. He has apparently re-aggravated the injury during training and could be out for awhile.

Haidara (knee) could be fit to return within the next 10 days after escaping serious injuries after he was tackled hard by Wigan's Callum McManaman on March 17, the Daily Mail reports.

There were initial beliefs that Haidara was going to be sidelined for a long time after he was in too much pain immediately after the injury for scans to be completed. However, he seems to have avoided any serious injury and could be fit for Newcastle's next match, a Europa League clash with Benefica on April 4.

The defender was in too much pain to be assessed after the match, but initial reports suggest ligament damage and bruising.
