Callum Wilson, Joe Willock, Alexander Isak: Full Newcastle United injury list & return dates

When the likes of Callum Wilson, Alexander Isak and Joe Willock are expected to return for Newcastle United.

Newcastle United are set to make a late call on whether Callum Wilson will be involved against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The Magpies beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 at the weekend but were dealt a new injury concern in the closing stages when Wilson placed his arm into a makeshift sling after getting into a tangle with a Reds defender.

United head coach Eddie Howe said after the game: “Slight concern for us after the game. His shoulder is fine  but there looks to be a problem with one of the muscles in his arm. We’re hopeful it’s not serious but at this moment we don’t know.”

As per Mail Online, the 31-year-old has a suffered a pectoral injury, the chest muscle that connects to the bones of the upper arm and shoulder.

Newcastle's medical team hope they will be able to manage the pain and allow him to feature against his former club but a decision won't be made until later in the week.

After what Howe described as "freak" injuries for Jacob Murphy and Nick Pope after the pair dislocated their shoulders, Wilson's injury will also leave the 46-year-old scratching his head.

If ruled out, that could see Anthony Gordon lead the line once again with Alexander Isak also a doubt. The Swede has missed the last two matches with a recurring groin issue and speaking on Friday, Howe said the 24-year-old had "no fixed return date".

Here's Newcastle United's current absentee list in full and each player's possible return dates:
