Taylor leaves hospital

Published Add your comment

Newcastle defender Steven Taylor has been discharged from hospital after undergoing treatment on an orthopaedic trauma ward.

The 24-year-old was admitted to Newcastle General Hospital at the weekend and reports have since emerged of an alleged training ground bust-up with team-mate Andy Carroll.

Taylor, who has spent the last two months recovering from a knee injury, was said to have suffered a broken jaw in the incident.

The Magpies have not commented on the allegations.

Owner Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias have launched an internal investigation with sources on Tyneside revealing they are furious that the focus has been taken off the club's promotion bid at a time when they were making headlines for the right reasons.

However, Northumbria Police have confirmed that the matter has not been reported to them.

Taylor is not expected to play again this season.

Carroll, 21, faces a Crown Court appearance next month on an assault charge in connection with an incident at a city night-spot.

He is currently the club's leading scorer this season with 15 goals after emerging from the academy ranks to stake a claim for a regular starting berth.

Carroll claimed the equaliser in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Bristol City, which left Newcastle two points clear of West Brom at the top of the Championship table.
