Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew reveals that the club are waiting on the results regarding Yoan Gouffran's injury.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has admitted that the club are still waiting for the results on the injury to Yoan Gouffran.

The January signing scored in the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur before having to be given oxygen and taken off after a challenge with Kyle Walker.

Pardew has revealed that Gouffran has gone for a scan on his leg and the club are hoping that it is only an impact injury rather than a break.

"He's had an impact on his shin which was a nasty gash, he'd have probably come off with a gash anyway but it's whether there's any bone damage," said Pardew.

"He's gone for an X-ray and we cross our fingers that comes back okay. I haven't seen it back. I think when you see a big gash it disturbs you as a player.

"The doctor was 50-50 from his experience of looking at it."

Newcastle are now 16th in the Premier League, with 27 points from 26 games.
