Alexander Isak pulls out of Sweden squad to hand Newcastle fitness worry



Newcastle United v AFC Bournemouth – Premier League – St James’ Park

Newcastle record signing Alexander Isak pulled out of the Swedish squad through injury to let head coach Eddie Howe sweat over his fitness.

The £58m summer arrival from Real Sociedad missed training on Wednesday ahead of Nations League B4 matches against Serbia and Slovenia, his 23rd birthday, and is returning to Tyneside.
