Report shares which number Wilson will wear at NUFC as Joelinton keeps no. 9 – originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to Sky Sports’ Keith Downie, new Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson will wear the number 13 jersey for the St. James Park outfit this season, with Joelinton set to retain the number 9 jersey.

It was widely reported that the England international will wear the legendary number 9 jersey following his arrival from Bournemouth, but that is no longer the case as Newcastle aren’t keen to strip Joelinton of his jersey number.

Japanese striker Yoshinori Muto was the Magpies’ former number 13, but he has been told to leave, and the latest decision appears to confirm that an exit is on the cards for him.

The likes of Alan Shearer and Micky Quinn once wore the Newcastle number 9 shirt, and fans weren’t happy that it was handed to Joelinton last summer.
