It’s a major blow for the forward who had only just returned to training this week. 

“This is unfortunate news for Dan who is likely to miss the 2024 season,” executive general manager of football Graham Wright said in a club statement.

“We are all extremely disappointed for Dan, and our entire club will rally around him during this difficult time and throughout his rehab journey.”

McStay played 14 games for the Magpies last season, kicking 20 goals after joining from Brisbane.

The forward had previously played 160 matches for Brisbane.
