Tamas Kadar has been handed an unexpected chance to resurrect his ailing Newcastle United career reports the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.

The 21-year-old Hungarian international is being lined up for a first-team call, following the season ending injury to Steven Taylor.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew has further defensive concerns after club captain Fabricio Collocini was ruled out of action for at least two weeks, meaning Kadar could feature against Norwich on Saturday.

"Hopefully, I can get my chance to play for Newcastle again," Kadar told the Chronicle. "I want to step up and play for the first team.

"To get to the first team, it'll be hard work – I know that – but I know myself. I feel I can do the job for the team.

"All I can do is train hard. If I train with the first team, I have to show the manager what I can do. That is my aim."

Kadar arrived at St James' Park in 2008 but has seen his progress limited primarily to youth and reserve team appearances, with his senior caps coming during Newcastle's spell in the Championship.

But with his contract up at the end of the season, and a seemingly a clear pathway through to the first-team - the time is now for Kadar to step up and prove he has what it takes to be a Tyneside star of the future.
