Newcastle $tar Wilson Ruled Out: 12-Week Injury Nightmare

Callum Wilson’s season faces a brutal end as the striker requires surgery for a damaged pectoral tendon, keeping him sidelined for 9-12 weeks.

This latest blow adds to Newcastle’s injury woes and throws Wilson’s future with the club into uncertainty.

Surgery this week will likely rule him out until early May, missing the majority of the remaining season.

Even an optimistic April return leaves him with barely any game time.

Newcastle were initially hopeful Wilson could manage the pain, but further examinations revealed the need for surgery.

This deprives manager Eddie Howe of a key player he hoped to rely on after Wilson finally returned to the starting lineup.

Wilson’s absence is a major setback for both the club and the player.

With his contract expiring in the summer and interest from abroad, this injury could mark the end of his Newcastle career.
