Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has revealed new signing Allan Saint-Maximin is a doubt for Saturday's Premier League trip to Norwich.
The French summer signing, who was handed a debut as a substitute in last weekend's 1-0 home defeat by Arsenal, has a hamstring problem and could miss out at Carrow Road, although fellow midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is expected to shake off an ankle injury.
Bruce said: "We think Jonjo Shelvey is going to be OK. He trained yesterday and the day before. We've got a slight doubt about Allan Saint-Maximin. He's got a bit of a hamstring and we'll see how he is today.
