Star marquee signing Jason Culina has confirmed that he requires further knee surgery and his season with the Newcastle Jets is over.
Culina had knee surgery during the off-season and was on the cusp of a much-anticipated return to the side when he began experiencing pain.
According to information released by the Newcastle Jets this afternoon, Culina's original cartilage procedure was a success but a further operation is required due to the alignment in his knee.
Culina will undergo surgery next week and hopes to be back on the park for the 2012/2013 A-League season.
