Eddie Howe calls up 17-year-old Newcastle youngster to first-team training today before AC Milan.



Newcastle enters the match having received the returns of two players who were sidelined with injuries during Sunday’s loss to Tottenham: Callum Wilson and Sean Longstaff. Neither the latter nor Anthony Gordon were observed in training prior to their match against AC Milan; however, this does not appear to be a cause for concern prior to the most important game of the season.

Following the shoulder surgery that Nick Pope underwent, Newcastle’s first-choice goalkeeper, Martin Dubravka, was also absent.


In addition to facing criticism for his recent performances, the Slovakian has also been linked to rumors that he is afflicted with a shoulder injury.Since he has been spotted absent from training in Newcastle prior to the match against AC Milan, Eddie Howe has called upon a 17-year-old to assist the first-team.


Prior to facing AC Milan, Adam Harrison trains with the first-team of Newcastle.

The club has uploaded a video to their official YouTube channel that features the players undergoing rigorous conditioning in preparation for their Champions League match against AC Milan.

In the event that Dubravka is unable to participate, Harrison may be called upon to represent the first-team at St James’ Park.


Nevertheless, at this time, there is no official confirmation of Dubravka’s condition; therefore, his absence from training should be regarded as a precaution and he should be fit to start against the Serie A titans.
