This is when Newcastle United need to register Alexander Isak by in order to play against Wolves
Newcastle United supporters may not have to wait too long to see Alexander Isak in action.
The Magpies face Wolves at Molineux on Sunday (2:00pm kick-off) and they could be boosted by a new face in their squad.
Isak will be eligible to face Bruno Lage’s side, but only if Newcastle register him with the Premier League in time.
The deadline for Isak to be registered, and thus eligible to face Wolves on Sunday, is noon on Friday.
The Sweden international has undergone a medical ahead of a proposed £58million move to St James’s Park and would become their record-signing, eclipsing their previous record-fee they paid for Joelinton in 2019.
“We're hopeful (that he will be available). He'd probably need to train with us in the next two days to be available, really, to play. We need to see how he is physically after his game last week, so we're very keen to see him – and get him involved as soon as possible.”
“I think England and the English game will suit his profile. He’s a really good athlete, technically very good. His best years are ahead of him. If the transfer does get completed, I think we've got an exciting player.”
Elsewhere, Howe confirmed that Callum Wilson will be missing for ‘a couple of weeks’ with a hamstring injury he sustained against Manchester City.
