The Magpies striker has been sidelined since August with a hamstring injury.

Wilson’s absence has been felt, but on Friday, Magpies boss Steve Bruce confirmed that the 29-year-old is fit again.

“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.
