Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan suffered a flexor injury against Newcastle on Tuesday, but an MRI scan has ruled out lesions.

The France international had been subbed off in the second half of Milan’s 0-0 draw against Newcastle on Tuesday and underwent medical examination Wednesday morning.

Several Italian media, including Daniele Longo, claim Maignan suffered a flexor injury in his left thigh although the MRI scan did not highlight any lesion. Maignan’s condition will be checked daily, reports Longo.

The France international had already spent considerable time on the sidelines last season remaining out of action for four months due to a calf injury. He missed 25 games for the Rossoneri last term, plus the World Cup with France.

Maignan’s teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek was also subbed off against Newcastle last night, but the Englishman has reassured that he’s only had a cramp. Therefore, the ex-Chelsea midfielder is expected to be available against Hellas Verona in the next Serie A match, unlike Maignan.
