The Lowdown: Isak signs
The St. James’ Park outfit have now confirmed the signing of striker Alexander Isak from Real Sociedad, and they will be hoping that he can be involved at Molineux on Sunday.
It is certainly an exciting arrival for the Toon Army, and very much needed in light of Callum Wilson’s recent injury.
The Latest: Krath injury
Speaking to the media in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match, Eddie Howe has revealed another ‘worry’ over an injury picked up by Emil Krafth, admitting that it ‘doesn’t look too good’ and that it is a ‘real shame’ for the North East club:
“We’ve got a worry over Emil Krafth. We don’t know what the details are currently. He’s going for a scan today but it doesn’t look too good which is a real shame for Emil and for us.”
The Verdict: Worrying
It is certainly worrying to hear of Krafth’s latest setback, and it sounds like that he could face a few weeks or even months out on the sidelines.
Should Krafth start for Newcastle?
The Magpies will want cover for Kieran Trippier at right-back, especially given the injury that he picked up last season, and so will not want to be pressured into playing him in every game.
Losing Krafth for a long time would be a big blow in this sense, and perhaps we could even see the Tynseiders dip into the market late on in the transfer window.
