Steve Bruce issues update about 'awful' injury
Javier Manquillo could be back by the end of the month.
The Newcastle United defender tore his hamstring on New Year’s Day.
Manquillo, out of contract in the summer, had impressed up to the injury.
“He got a bad, bad injury – an awful tear,” said head coach Steve Bruce told BBC Radio Newcastle. “He’s out on the grass. Let's hope (he’s fit) a week to 10 days.”
