Football - Gouffran ruled out

Newcastle striker Yoan Gouffran will miss Thursday night's Europa League clash with Metalist Kharkiv with the leg injury he suffered at Tottenham.

However, the Frenchman is expected to resume training on Monday after X-rays revealed there was no fracture as was first feared.

Hatem Ben Arfa (knee) continues to work his way back to full fitness, but fellow midfielder Sammy Ameobi is out with a hamstring problem.
