Wolves have concerns over the availability of Diogo Jota for Monday’s home clash with Newcastle.

The West Midlands outfit have been in Marbella for a warm weather training camp this week ahead of hosting Newcastle on Monday.

Jota is a doubt for the clash after missing Tuesday’s 3-2 FA Cup victory over Shrewsbury with a knock. He travelled to Spain with the rest of the squad but hasn’t been involved in full training and will need to be assessed by the medical team.

Ruben Neves was on the bench for the FA Cup replay but doesn’t have any issues and should be back in the starting XI. Likewise, Ruben Vinagre is expected to come back into the fold after missing the midweek engagement with a virus.
