‘Looks significant’ – Newcastle United star facing lengthy spell out

Even Newcastle United loanees are suffering from injuries. Harrison Ashby has become the latest Newcastle United player to receive an injury, which might keep him out for a long time.

In January, the Magpies signed the 22-year-old from West Ham United. He has yet to participate in a competitive match for United, but he did play in pre-season, including games against Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion at the Premier League Summer Series in the United States.


Newcastle United - Harrison Ashby joins Newcastle United


Ashby joined Swansea City in the Championship for the 2023-24 season to further his development. The right-back has made 13 appearances so far, but he was ruled out of Wednesday’s game against Leeds United due to a hamstring injury.

He was taken off after 10 minutes against Hull City on Saturday, and Swansea manager Michael Duffs feels the defender’s injury is “significant.”

“I haven’t spoken to the physio, but when it’s a hamstring and he’s limping after a game, it never ends well normally,” he remarked following the Tigers’ 2-2 draw at home. “I’m not able to give a full diagnosis or a timeframe, but it looks like another significant one.” Ashby’s injury has little immediate influence on Howe’s first-team preparations, but it does add to the unwelcome trend of injuries. Yankuba Minteh, another Newcastle loanee, recently missed five games for Feyenoord before making his return at the weekend.

During his time on the bench, Minteh traveled to Tyneside to be evaluated by Newcastle doctors. If Duff’s claims are true, Ashby will almost certainly be obliged to do the same.

Newcastle currently has the Premier League’s longest absence list, with Howe missing Sandro Tonali, Jacob Murphy, Dan Burn, Callum Wilson, Elliot Anderson, Sven Botman, Harvey Barnes, Sean Longstaff, Joe Willock, Javier Manquillo, and Matt Targett.
