Fulham manager Marco Silva will have Aleksandar Mitrovic available for Newcastle’s Premier League visit on Saturday.
Following his belated international return, the Serbia striker is under scrutiny but is expected to play against his former club.
However, Silva could be without a number of players as Fulham prepare to check some including Antonee Robinson. Manor Solomon and Harry Wilson remain on the sidelines with Joao Palhinha suspended.
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is set to make a number of late calls ahead of kick-off at Craven Cottage.
Striker Callum Wilson is back in training after a five-game break with a hamstring injury, as is midfielder Bruno Guimaraes (hamstring) and full-back Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring) and all three could be involved.
Chris Wood (rib) and front-mate Alexander Isak (hamstring) remain doubtful, while goalkeeper Karl Darlow (ankle), defender Emil Krafth (knee) and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey are still on the loss list.
Fulham provisional squad: Leno, Tete, Tosin, Ream, Robinson, Reed, Chalobah, Willian, Pereira, De Cordova-Reid, Mitrovic, Rodak, Duffy, Kebano, Cairney, James, Mbabu, Vinicius, Harris
Provisional Newcastle squad: Pope, Karius, Trippier, Murphy, Manquillo, Targett, Dummett, Lewis, Botman, Burn, Schar, Lascelles, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Longstaff, Fraser, Ritchie, Anderson, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wilson.
