Newcastle have confirmed that Steven Taylor will miss "a few months" after undergoing surgery following a hamstring rupture.
Mystery had surrounded the absence of Taylor – missing since the home game against Arsenal – but on Tuesday Steve McClaren announced during the Capital One pre-match press conference that the defender would not return until later this year after going under the knife following a serious training ground injury. The unfortunate Taylor has only started one game - Man United - since recovering from a ruptured Achilles and the 29 year-old will struggle to play again in 2015. Newcastle will also check on a number of players ahead of the third round tie v Sheff Wednesday with Papiss Cisse, Jack Colback and Massadio Haidara all doubtful having picked up knocks during the defeat to Watford. Cheick Tiote has returned to training – knee injury – but the Ivorian is lacking fitness and will not be included in the squad. Sep 22 - 5:38 PM
