The defender, signed from Eibar last summer, today took to Twitter to assure fans he will return "as quickly as possible".
"During my last training session, I left the field due to an injury," said the 27-year-old.
"After further medical examination, the doctor told me I have a cruciate ligament injury.
"I'll have surgery in the next few days. I'll do everything I can to get back as quickly as possible on St James' Park."
