Fabian Schar will return to the Newcastle squad for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.
Schar has sat out the last two games through suspension, but would have almost certainly missed Monday night’s 2-0 defeat at Arsenal with a head injury suffered on international duty with Switzerland.
Full-back DeAndre Yedlin, midfielders Mohamed Diame and Isaac Hayden and striker Joselu will all undergo late fitness tests on knocks, but Sean Longstaff (knee) is the only confirmed absentee.
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson reported no fresh injury problems ahead of the trip to the north east.
The Eagles are expected to have the same squad to choose from following the midweek 2-0 defeat at Tottenham.
Defender Mamadou Sakho remains unavailable as he continues to recover from knee surgery.
