Newcastle: Alexander Isak ‘very close’ to injury return

Newcastle: Alexander Isak ‘very close’ to injury return -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak is now ‘very close’ to making a return from a lengthy injury layoff, reliable journalist Keith Downie has confirmed.

The Lowdown: Isak out for months

The Swede was an exciting summer addition by the Magpies, coming in as the big-money marquee signing who could help take Eddie Howe’s side up a gear.

Isak made a promising start to life at St James’ Park, scoring twice in his first three appearances, but he hasn’t played since because of a hamstring injury suffered in September.

Thankfully, Newcastle have continued to excel without him but there is still no denying that his return is needed as a busy season ramps up after the World Cup break.

The Latest: Closing in on return

Taking to Twitter, Downie said that Isak is now close to being back in the fold and should be available in the coming weeks:

“Alexander Isak very close to a return, and should be involved in the next couple of weeks.”

The Verdict: Huge boost for Newcastle

This is a major boost for Newcastle, with Isak a player of such immense promise, having been hailed as ‘exceptional’ by England legend Gary Lineker.

His return will suddenly give the Magpies another major goal threat, with a truly top-class centre forward missing whenever Callum Wilson is injured, which unfortunately still is the case far too often.

Isak is someone who could make the difference in Newcastle sealing a top-four finish and he could dovetail to devastating effect with the in-form Miguel Almiron.
