Newcastle United star Ryan Taylor reveals comeback date from latest knee injury

Newcastle Stand

The utility player has been out of action since November.

Newcastle United utility man Ryan Taylor has given the club a boost by revealing his latest injury comeback could come as early as next weekend. The midfielder, who can also play at full-back, told a fan on Twitter that he is back in action at the start of February, Tweeting:

For Taylor it is the latest in a long line of comebacks from a series of knee injuries. In October he returned in the Capital One Cup triumph over Premier League champions Manchester City. That was his first appearance after 26 months out injured with a succession of serious knee troubles that have plagued his career.

He went on to come on against West Brom in November before starting his first game of professional since a Europa League tie against Atromitos in August 2012. That was on the 22nd November, but he limped out of the game in the 34th minute holding his knee and fans feared the worst.

But now, just a little over two months down the line it looks as though Taylor is once again ready to try and make his comeback for the club - and he needs to.

His contract at Newcastle expires in the summer and if he cannot prove his fitness staying with the club is unlikely, whilst finding another club would be equally as hard.

So Taylor will hope this is the last comeback he has to make for a while.
