INJURED ... Massadio Haidara.

MASSADIO Haidara has been ruled out of Newcastle United’s trip to Everton on Sunday – but Remy Cabella and Rob Elliot will return to contention.

Haidara picked up a knee injury in the win over Aston Villa in late-February, and missed the game against Manchester United.

Newcastle head coach John Carver has confirmed he will again be missing at Goodison Park.

He said: “Massadio Haidara had an injection in his knee and it hasn’t settled down so he won’t be fit for the weekend.”

However, Carver says Cabella and Elliot are ‘raring to go’ after returning to fitness.

He added: “Remy Cabella and Rob Elliot are back in the squad following injury. They are raring to go.”
