'Delighted': Some Newcastle fans buzzing over 'massive' Friday news
A number of Newcastle United fans have welcomed the news about Callum Wilson being available once again.
The Magpies striker has been sidelined since August with a hamstring injury.
Wilson began the season in great form, scoring in the 4-2 loss to West Ham and the 2-2 draw with Southampton.
Newcastle are still winless in the Premier League this season, having drawn three and lost four of their fixtures.
Wilson’s absence has been felt, but on Friday, Magpies boss Steve Bruce confirmed that the 29-year-old is fit again.
“The only ones not available are Dubravka and Dummett,” he said at his press conference ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Spurs.
“The captain is fit, Jonjo Shelvey is fit and Callum Wilson is fit.”
And the news has gone down well amongst Newcastle fans:

Obviously Newcastle fans have had a lot to celebrate over the past week, with their club now effectively the richest in world football.
But despite the takeover, there’s still the issue of Newcastle being winless this season and sitting in the bottom three of the league table.
Wilson’s return, combined with an incredible buzz around the club, could hopefully provide the catalyst for a surge up the table.
