Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United will be looking to return to winning ways against Sam Allardyce’s Baggies having drawn against Wolves in the top-flight last time out.

But the Magpies are in the midst of a serious injury crisis with several players currently sidelined.

Indeed, TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan has argued that the double injury blow to Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron could have major adverse effects on Newcastle United's survival hopes this season.

Bruce’s men are currently three points clear of the relegation zone, and are already without top scorer Callum Wilson.

peaking on talkSPORT, he said: “They got Saint-Maximin back at the end of January and you started to see a different style of play that the fans had been calling for – a more ambitious Newcastle team because certain players were available again. Ultimately Steve had taken certain perspectives and changed some of his thinking.

"I watched Saint-Maximin, I watched Newcastle on Saturday against Wolves, and Almiron as well, and I thought they were two standout players.

"This can't help Newcastle, he’ll have to shuffle his pack again, and god forbid we start seeing like Andy Carroll starting again for them. But they’ve got to do what they’ve got to do. This doesn’t help them.

"They’ve lost Callum Wilson as well and I don’t know when he’ll be coming back, and all of these things make it very difficult for them."

Here, we take a look at the rest of the transfer talk from Newcastle United’s Premier League rivals:
