DAVIDE Santon’s battling to play again this season.
The Newcastle United defender suffered a hamstring injury against Fulham earlier this month.
Santon has a chance of being involved against Arsenal at St James’s Park on the final day of the season.
But there is a chance the 22-year-old might not kick a ball again this campaign.
Massadio Haidara, 20, will deputise for Santon against Liverpool on Saturday.
