’s prolific striker will be out for up to 2 months. He has suffered a hamstring injury which will last for six to eight weeks. Wilson has scored 10 goals and provided 5 assists in the Premier League this season as he joined the Magpies from Bournemouth this summer.

"Disappointed that I'm gonna have to miss the next few months due to this hamstring,"

the 28-year-old posted on Twitter.

"[But it is] just another bump along the road that I will come back fitter and stronger from."

"Callum Wilson has got a tear to his hamstring so that could be six to eight weeks [out],"

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce said, who also confirmed that Fabian Schar and Javier Manquillo will be out for a similar amount of time.

"Fabian Schar [also] has had an operation on his knee ligaments so it's eight weeks out for him. Javier Manquillo did his ankle ligaments so he could be a similar time out.

"The aftermath of Saturday's game, losing three players including your center-forward for weeks is a bitter pill to swallow.

"We hoped it was a grade one but unfortunately it's worse than that. We don't think he needs an operation but it takes time."
