Newcastle lose defender Taylor for three months


LONDON: Newcastle’s preparations for their Premier League return have suffered a blow with defender Steven Taylor ruled out for three months following shoulder surgery.

The versatile defender dislocated his left shoulder in a friendly against Carlisle United on July 17, the club said on their website (www.nufc.co.uk) on Thursday.

Newcastle, who won promotion back to the Premier League last season, bolstered their defensive options on Wednesday by signing former England and Arsenal centreback Sol Campbell on a one-year deal. — Reuters
