Nikos has been ruled out for the rest of this year due to ligament damage. Newcastle's recognised number one central defender he twisted his knee in the first-half of the opening home game with Derby on August 23.

He is going to have a reconstruction on the cruciate ligaments and he is probably going to miss the game for the World cup qualifiers this October, but will play against Germany in March 2001.

Newcastle's Bobby Robson said "I think we can forget about Nikos for a long time. He needs an operation on his cruciate ligaments and he is going to be out for about five months. As far as we are concerned he will not play for us until he is fully recovered.''

Dabizas missing for five months is likely to be the biggest setback for Robson.
