Newcastle United have suffered a massive blow ahead of their FA Cup match against West Bromwich Albion as it has emerged that Allan Saint-Maximin won't be available for selection.
Saint-Maximin was reportedly not back to full fitness against Burnley and only managed to play for 12 minutes and it has emerged that his injury crisis has gotten worse.
The 22-year-old is believed to be suffering from back and hamstring pain and is likely to be on the sidelines for a couple of weeks until he fully recovers.
Saint-Maximin was recently on the sidelines for a month after he sustained a hamstring injury back in December 2019 and he is becoming a growing concern as he has played a key role for the Magpies.
He has emerged as one of Newcastle's most exciting signings this season after he made 4.3 dribbles per game this campaign alone.
