Steven Taylor hopes to be back on the pitch by the turn of the year.

The Newcastle United defender suffered a hamstring injury in training last month.

And long-serving Taylor is now stepping up his rehabilitation.

“I’ll be back in December,” Taylor told Sky Sports. “The rehab is going well.”

Taylor was a Sky Sports studio guest for yesterday’s 6-2 win over Norwich City at St James’s Park.

The 29-year-old is out of contract next summer.
