A leg problem forces Yoan Gouffran to miss Newcastle United's home encounter against Metalist Kharkiv.

Newcastle United will be without Yoan Gouffran for tomorrow's Europa League tie against Metalist Kharkiv.

The Frenchman is suffering with a leg injury that he picked up during the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday.

However, fears that he had broken a bone have been ended by the results of a scan, which showed that there was no lasting damage.

Hatem Ben Arfa and Sammy Ameobi have also been ruled out with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
