Full-back Danny Simpson is back in the Newcastle squad after more than a month out with a hamstring injury.
His return is timely for the Magpies, who are likely to face Bordeaux without centre-backs Steven Taylor (calf) and Fabricio Coloccini (hamstring).

Keeper Tim Krul is still sidelined with an ankle problem, but midfielder Yohan Cabaye is in contention after recovering from a mouth infection.

Newcastle drew their opening game 0-0 against Portuguese side Maritimo.
Bordeaux are top of Group D after winning their first match 4-0 against Club Bruges.
