Callum Wilson injury: Newcastle striker could be out until after October international break

Newcastle United could be without their top scorer Callum Wilson until after the October international break.

This is another blow to Steve Bruce’s struggling side, who are yet to win a game in the Premier League this campaign.

Sources indicate that the striker’s quad muscle injury, which forced Wilson off after scoring during the 2-2 draw against Southampton on August 28, is likely to keep him out for up to six weeks.

More than a fortnight has passed since the 29-year-old tweaked the muscle — Wilson suffered the injury during the first half against Southampton but continued and scored, before being substituted in the 69th minute — and, if the initial prognosis proves correct, then he could miss Newcastle’s next three matches.

Bruce has refused to put a timescale on Wilson’s return but the striker is unlikely to feature against Leeds United on Friday evening, Watford, or in the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
