The former AFC Bournemouth ace hinted that at the time of his scan, he was going to be out injured for at least a month, saying:
“I thought it was probably going to be a four-week lay-off.
“The scan revealed it was a little bit worse than that.”
Could Wilson be back after the international break?
Given that Wilson has missed the last five matches for the St. James’ Park faithful in the Premier League with a hamstring injury that he unfortunately picked up in the 3-2 home win against Southampton back in February, there may be some cautious optimism that if he continues his rehab work over the international break, he may well come back fit enough to play in the remaining games of the 2020/21 term.
Was Wilson a good signing by Newcastle United?
It is obvious just how important the 29-year-old striker is to the North East club, with no fewer than 10 goals in the top flight so far this season, which is more than double the next highest scorer for Steve Bruce’s team, while his impressive tally of five assists is also the most out of any Toon player (Whoscored).
With the Magpies recently teasing that he will be ‘back soon’ on their official Twitter page, a return to the side for the England international may well be possible after the break.
