Club-record signing Miguel Almiron will not be available to make his Newcastle debut against Tottenham on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.
Almiron joined Newcastle in a £21m deal on Deadline Day but is not able to face Spurs as he waits on his work permit.
Instead, he is likely to be watching on as Newcastle look to build on their shock midweek victory over Manchester City that moved them five points clear of the relegation zone.
