Newcastle midfielder Joelinton carried off on stretcher just 10 minutes into their final day win over Burnley as his impressive season ends with a nasty clash of heads at Turf Moor

Newcastle United star Joelinton endured a premature end to his season after being carried off on a stretcher at Burnley.

Eddie Howe's side took on Burnley at Turf Moor on the final day of the season aiming for a top-half finish, and they got exactly that when Callum Wilson's brace earned them a 2-1 victory.

Though after a promising start to the game, things quickly turned sour for the Magpies when Joelinton went down after a clash with a Burnley player.
